Peacock Visual Arts are very sad to hear of the passing of John McLean.
We had the pleasure of working with John McLean on many occasions. His 2002 ‘Granite Suite’ is a lasting tribute to his subtle and determined vision and his outstanding eye for colour. In a city where this weighty stone is widely regarded through its built form, John masterfully interpreted through print. The ‘Granite Suite’ reveals the nuances of colour and tone, bringing a tenderness to the most stoic of stones and a new description of the form for us to consider. These works transcend the medium, a fitting legacy to a brilliant man, we grew in his company, we will be forever indebted to his presence.
