Fiona Maclean Artist Bio:

Fiona was born and raised in New Zealand and at an early age moved to Sydney, Australia. After studying Gaphic Design in NZ, Makeup for Film/TV/Special Effects in Australia she continued her studies in Fine Art at the prestigious Parsons School of Art (The New School) in New York City in 2005. She attended the Parsons School of Art (The New School) in New York where her studies were interrupted by a family tragedy and her art career put on hold for a few years. In 2010 she completed two Artist Residencies in Painting and Illustration at the New York’s School of Visual Arts (SVA), thus allowing her to take a new direction in her career and developing a new body of energised work. Here is where she gained the confidence and recognition from critics and her peers to move forward with her Art career and as a result is regularly selling paintings, being recognised by Art buyers and collectors. Fiona was chosen by Saatchiart.com as an emerging Artist and is already garnering attention for her work. Featured in SaatchiArt.com Fiona was included in this strong emerging talent of Artists in the 'One to Watch' released by Saatchi. Fiona's paintings and illustrations hang in private collections and appear in International publications. Artist Statement As an Artist I'm fascinated by the fleetingness of youth, beauty and sexuality and the elusiveness of these particular elements, trying to capture those elements within my portraits and figurative work. Always curious to discover whom the subject is behind the façade, trying to get to the essence of the person, breathing and bringing to life the portrait or figure. Trying to capture their sexuality, their beauty, and who they are. Evoking an element of ‘drama’ to the subject where the viewer can ‘draw their own conclusions to what this person’s ‘story’ maybe. Working from life but mostly from photographs as reference. Often using Acrylics like a watercolour and sometimes combining acrylics and oils. Fiona's work has been described as "hauntingly beautiful and that her portraits have traces of glamour and intrigue beneath their honesty. Her subjects are intensely engaging extracting and translating fragments of secrets of the soul."
