EXHIBITIONS

2017 Les Dames, solo show, Artefact, Stirchley, Birmingham, UK | 12 July - 4 August 2017

Les Dames is a selection of work created within the past two years. The female figures depicted provide a vessel to not only explore the delicacy of form and hidden structure, but the idea of suspension or reiteration of time and place. McQuillan's ladies have an air of quietude and unapologetic femininity combined with either strength or susceptibility.

Opening reception 21st July 2017, 6.30pm - 10.00pm. Event details: https://www.facebook.com/events/107793779873478/
