Introduction

Born in Christchurch in 1956, Euan Macleod completed a study of Fine Arts at the University of Canterbury. Since his painting, Self-portrait; head like a hole won Australia’s most prestigious art prize, the Archibald Prize for Portraiture, in 1999, he has received numerous awards.

Highlights

As a result of the Archibald Prize, Euan was described as an artist ‘prepared to push the boat out into uncharted waters and dare to take the risk’. Macleod has exhibited extensively on both sides of the Tasman. He has received numerous awards and is well represented in public galleries throughout New Zealand and Australia.

The isolation of Dusky Sound is what most impressed me. To be in an area that’s pristine, one of the few places on earth that we haven’t disrupted. In my paintings it is our presence that interests me - how we interact with the natural world.
