About CROSSROADS:

 

WILLIAM MACKINNON explores themes of Australian and personal identity in his solo exhibition, Crossroads.  Existing at the intersection of representation and abstraction, reality and imagination, MACKINNON creates magical worlds of landscapes, nocturnes and dream scapes reflective of his internal and external environment.  Employing mediums such as oil paint, solvent, enamel, and spray paint, MACKINNON’s landscapes evoke a mystery and richness in surface which parallel its psychological narrative content.
