Ian McLagan Paintings

Ian McLagan never wanted to sell his paintings. He had a show here in 2010 of digital prints - images taken from his paintings - but he hung on to the originals until he passed away in 2014. Now his estate has decided to release a few of them into the wild and we're offering them here

Mac's paintings were his attempt at capturing the hallucinations that accompanied the migraine headaches that bedeviled him. Not simply to document them but to make something beautiful from his pain. He would make sketches immediately afterward and then, when he felt better, try to render them in paint on canvas.
