Quentin MacFarlane

b. 1935, New Zealand

Macfarlane was an early exponent of abstraction in New Zealand art, recognised for formalist yet painterly works and his influence as an advocate for modernism in the 1960s. Macfarlane exhibited with The Group (an artists collective in Christchurch) along with other notable artists of that period such as William Sutton and Doris Lusk. He was an influential art teacher in Christchurch and a partner in the long running Brooke Gifford Gallery, until re-locating to Auckland where he continues to paint.

Macfarlane graduated from the Canterbury College, School of Fine Arts, Christchurch (1957) and is represented in the collections of the Christchurch Art Gallery and Auckland Art Gallery in New Zealand.
