William Mackinnon (b. 1978, Melbourne) lives and works between Ibiza, the UK, and Australia. Mackinnon’s landscape paintings are what the artist calls ‘psychological landscapes’, drawing on personal experience of the world he inhabits. They are works of memory and discovery, of the familiar and the unknown – combining the real and the imaginary to transform everyday experiences from mundane to an enigmatic other. Guided by recurring motifs of the road with all its cracks and potholes; of headlights and reflecting street signs, Mackinnon’s work plays on oppositions – light and darkness; comfort and threat; that which is deeply personal, yet profoundly universal.
