McCahon Country

McCahon Country book

My wife bought this for me for our twenty-second wedding anniversary. It’s a beautiful book, and Justin Paton is a great art writer (I’ve read his How to Look at a Painting). More importantly, I increasingly value McCahon’s work—not all of it, but much of it. It resonates deeply with me as a Christian, and I’m drawn to his aesthetic and his earthy colour palette. I love his landscapes (the less-abstracted ones) and his word-based paintings. I’ll be enjoying this for some time to come.
