Zoe McDonnell: Stealing Fire - Art Collector

Zoe MacDonell, Intrepid Space, 2017, acrylic paint, pastel, colour pencil on layers of silk and paper, 150 x 264cm. Courtesy of the artist and Nanda\Hobbs Contemporary.

The works within MacDonell’s Stealing Fire exhibition address our humanist preoccupations about being in the landscape, yet MacDonell has no desire to possess or even occupy the land. Her motives are more ethereal, yet anchored in a very human feeling of being moved by the experience—of being immersed in the land or indeed the ocean. Such places have touched our psyche—we have stared in wonder at the breath-taking beauty, love, lust and unabridged power that is drawn from the natural environment—all deep emotions that are at the core of MacDonell’s practice.
