Euan Macleod

B. 1956

New Zealand born Euan Macleod is a well established and esteemed artist. He is best known for his textual landscapes traversed by a recurring lone, anonymous figure. According to the artist, this figure is an everyman - a universal symbol for the experiences of loneliness, emptiness and worthlessness. At once disquieting and beautiful, Macleod’s moving images speak to the ache of human existence.

He is represented in prominent public and private collections across Australia and overseas - including in the National Gallery of Victoria and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Macleod is also a Wynne Prize finalist and winner of the Archibald Prize, Sulman Prize and Blake Prize for Religious Art.
