This work features in Darcy McCrae’s 2022 solo exhibition Paintings From A Great Height showing at Curatorial+Co. Redfern.
Created in the months following the birth of his first child, Paintings From A Great Height is an ode to the emotions Darcy McCrae experienced through a deeply transformative moment in his life—becoming a father.
Across this body of work, McCrae explores themes of domesticity, family and safety. Representing a blend of figurative, still lifes and interiors created with vivid pallets, pattern and composition, these works portray a timeless place—the other-worldly moment right after a new life enters the world and instincts kick in. A moment where all at once the stakes suddenly become greater and time slows right down. Every moment symbolising a budding memory.
Portrayals of nudes, animals, travel and furniture centre each piece, each of vessel for McCrae’s thoughts, painted with his signature bold mark-making and naïve style. Paintings From A Great Height represents the entry into McCrae’s next chapter of life through vast, visceral painting.
