JOHN MACFARLANE: Stage and Costume Designs,
Maya Polsky Gallery

Scottish artist John Macfarlane has forged a two-pronged career as a painter and an accomplished costume designer for dance and opera. Based in Wales since 1975, he has worked with leading performance companies around the world, all while making a name for himself as a figurative painter with a keen eye for nuance and lyricism of style that is reminiscent of Jenny Saville or Lucian Freud. In addition to his studies of the human form, Macfarlane paints gouache and oil sketches of theater scenes, Old-World architecture, and richly rendered still lifes.
