Stewart MacFarlane is not steered by perfection in his art, he seeks narrative. Captured in the day’s transitional moments - night thawing into morning, afternoon caramelising into sunset - his works are mise en scenes. They are realist with an impressionist edge, surreal in lighting and perspective, and often include an erotic enigma.

In ‘India Resting’ MacFarlane presents a woman who cannot sleep. In the background, a store’s lights beam and a van waits, ominous clues in a still unfolding neon-noir thriller. What is keeping India awake? What event is stewing behind her? Seductive, mysterious and strangely unreal, ‘India Resting’ will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Having spent considerable time in the US, MacFarlane is influenced by Alex Katz, Janet Fish (who he worked under) and Chuck Close. He is represented at the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, Artbank and Queensland Art Gallery. For collectors of figurative and narrative art, tune into the alluring ‘India Resting’.
