Jeff Makin: Landscape of memories - Art Collector

Jeff Makin, Hanging Rock, oil on linen, 91 x 91cm. Courtsey: the artist, and James Makin Gallery, Melbourne

In this new series of paintings, senior artist Jeff Makin, re-engages with the landscape in and around the goldfields region of Central Victoria – Chewton, Castlemaine, Hanging Rock, Yapeen and Mt Macedon. Makin’s move to Chewton from Collingwood, 5 years ago, has impacted dramatically on him and his artistic practice.

Makin explains: “These new paintings at James Makin Gallery, are the first series in what I suspect will be a long romance. Five years ago I moved studio from Collingwood to an old music hall at Chewton, in the goldfields region of Central Victoria. What followed was the beginning of a new chapter in my painting life. It was/is inspirational. " Jeff Makin, March 2015
