Icons by Julie McKenzie
On display right now in the gallery at Kingstudio in Maclean is Icons by Julie McKenzie. These paintings are my response to a trip to the museums and galleries of Europe. I loved the way frescoes of the old 12C churches were divided to tell the stories of the bible. As an athiest i have used this style to create my own stories. This image is called Ignition - using the redhead from match box covers it is about the stupidity of man, how we have learned to harness energy and then turn it into methods of destruction.
