Bruce McLean has been investigating the condition of sculpture since the late 1960s. In a range of media he has creatively interrogated its diverse possibilities of meaning and its presentations, its private and public settings and its critical contexts.
In his more recent collage works, the artist has taken inspiration from Gustave Courbet’s The Artist's Studio; a real allegory summing up seven years of my artistic and moral life (1854-5).
