About Ewen MacDonald

 
 
  • Biography
    A scrap iron man’s boots summed up so much. The worn soles spoke of hours trudging dirty wet streets, the cracked leather told of the need of functionality over looks.

    The old hammers were left amidst the waste, discarded at the end of a day? Their worn handles spoke of intimacy with human hands whilst the gashed dented metal told of brute force and the need to subdue.

    The old Mercedes was undergoing ‘body-work’ it’s stylish lines and smooth surfaces were being brought back to life under the tender eye of a craftsman. The decay and rust scoured away awaiting a new skin of paint.

    The wall stood passively marking time. It bore the graffiti patiently but the scratches still smarted. The shaft of sunlight brought relief like a warm bath for a bruised body.

    The objects I paint tell a story, they stand in witness to lives of labour, repetition and industry. I paint human resourcefulness and celebrate beauty in the everyday.
