Land of the long black shadow

The Stedelijk Museum curated Colin McCahon retrospective – ‘A Question of Faith’ – reviewed in the Weekend Australian, prior to its opening at the Ian Potter Centre in Melbourne’s Federation Square. Critic Susan McCulloch: “The messages – and indeed the images – of many of McCahon’s works may seem to offer an impossibly bleak view. Yet their pared-back grandeur and sheer boldness of sign-making lifts them into a timeless dimension.” McCulloch lauds McCahon as one of Australasia’s brilliant abstractionists “whose uncompromising individual paintings were underpinned by a deeply felt sense of place.”
