Fiona Maclean is an Artist and Painter originally from NZ and living in Australia. Fiona’s work has been described as hauntingly beautiful and that her portraits have traces of glamour and intrigue beneath their honesty. Her subjects are intensely engaging extracting and translating fragments of secrets of the soul.
As an Artist she is fascinated by the fleetingness of youth, beauty and sexuality and the elusiveness of these particular elements, trying to capture those within my portraits and figurative work. Always curious to discover whom the subject is behind the facade, trying to get to the essence of the person, breathing and bringing to life the portrait or figure. Trying to capture their sexuality, their beauty, and who they are. Evoking an element of drama to the subject where the viewer can draw their own conclusions to what this person’s story maybe. Working from life but mostly from photographs as reference. Often using Acrylics like a watercolor and sometimes combining acrylics and oils.
Fiona’s paintings hang in private collections and appear in International publications.
