About the work

Bush Camp, 2000, is an excellent example of McLean’s work and contains all of the signature elements that are characteristic of her aesthetic. This painting, like many of McLean’s refers to her childhood and youth where she lived a very nomadic and traditional life, often hunting with her family in the desert. Goannas, camp dogs, birds, plants and a large water hole are all depicted on the canvas, in a naive style that reflects McLean’s fond memories of this time in her life.
