Jock McFadyen PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Jock McFadyen free pdf Jock McFadyen describes himself as a realist, and his intense paintings describe the urban backdrop. Human figures used to be central to these works, but having made pictures about London, New York, Berlin and Belfast, the locations have in many ways become the subject. Monumental paintings of commercial buildings, walkways and "vomitories", as well as the natural landscape, have replaced the central characters of his early work. Although never part of any group or movement, McFadyen sees his main precedent as the line of British realism which includes Sickert, L.S. Lowry, the so-called School of London and younger contemporaries such as Richard Billingham. He is close to the debate about painting and its relationship to contemporary art practice, and is also interested in those who have parallel concerns in other media. This book places the artist not simply within the recent history of British art, but also within the wider context of realism in film, the contemporary novel and music.
