A leading figure in the development of 1960s Conceptual Art, Bruce McLean is regarded as one of the major players in contemporary British art. Rebellious and pioneering, McLean loosened traditional forms into abstraction and paved the way for pop art aesthetics.
For Agave Americana think Matisse meets Mondrian meets Motherwell: an intrepid blend of decorative arts, formalism, and abstraction. In this busy screen print, blocks of bright colour sit beside striated panels of monochrome, textured strokes of grey pigment and stylistic images of flora, from agave fronds to leafless trees to branches of olives. From one of the pioneers of British abstract art, Agave Americana is an exemplar in compositional experimentalism.

About the artist
A leading figure in the development of 1960s Conceptual Art, Bruce McLean is regarded as one of the major players in contemporary British art. Rebellious and pioneering, McLean helped break down the rigid formalism of visual art, loosening traditional forms into abstraction and paving the way for Pop aesthetics.
McLean began his career making sculptures from rubbish and debris, abandoning conventional art to develop a satirical commentary that mocked the pomposity of the art world and its long-established forms.
He works across a range of media, including sculpture, film, photography, printmaking, drawing and live work, which continues to be exhibited in private and public collections around the world.
