Jock McFadyen, Lost Boat Party
Exhibition Publication by The Scottish Gallery and Dovecot Studios.
Born in Paisley in 1950, McFadyen has spent a lifetime exploring the sublime landscape tradition. While some of his well known paintings such as Mallaig and Estuary Music are almost minimalist, many of the paintings are void of human presence, instead inviting the viewer to inhabit the haunting and occasionally hostile panoramas of land and sea before them.
The eponymous painting Lost Boat Party depicts a seaside funfair which appears to have detached itself from the land and is slowly drifting out to sea. This is a powerful metaphor for the human condition, and many of the paintings in the exhibition describe the sea with all its implications of threat and indifference, as well as painterly possibility.
