Brian McKay is considered one of Western Australia’s most prominent artists.

Over the past four decades his practice has continued to develop and expand from his early work as a design artist in the 1960s which gave him a deep appreciation for materials and process. His exposure to hard-edged art and minimalism during time spent in England during the 60s is evident in the mechanical surfaces of works he produced in the 1970s.

While many of his paintings tend to abstraction, his interest in architectural forms, the affects of light on textured surfaces, and identity of place is evident in the works in this exhibition. The paintings with their metallic surfaces and geometric forms reflect McKay’s fascination with design and surface – each of which are unarguably unique.

This exhibition examines McKay’s practice over the past five decades, from 1954 to 2004 and includes works on paper and paintings from:
