There’s a Sculpture in my Profiteroles and A Spot of Brown Windsor Soup are great examples of how McLean’s sharp sense of humour infiltrates his work. The bold contrast of shape and colour underline the artist’s skill in creating such a sophisticated composition.
McLean’s work is in a permanent state of movement and invention; from the late 1960s his range of media has included painting, printmaking, sculpture, film, photography drawing and live work; in all of which humour, scepticism and wit are central. His work seeks to challenge the concept of ‘sculpture’ and indeed of ‘art’ by creating work that questions establishment thinking, materials and methods of display.
