Compass Gallery, Glasgow
The bicycle is an unusual subject for a painlerto pursue. But pursue it with energy Peter McLaren certainly does. His degree show at Edinburgh College olArt was lull of them, spinning spokes and wind-swept riders - a whole bank of two-wheeled travellers.
In this solo show, the bicycle is still predominant. Young men hold their hands on the handlebars and their heads upturn in triumph. They are heroes. Winners of the race. Some carry oll glamorous girls in summer colour, theirsentimentwrapped up in Hollywood romantics and sensuality. They are an attractive but chilly, superficial bunch. McLaren seems keen to perfect his style lirst belore pushing his subject to limits.
In doing so, he has been developing a splattering technique in most ol paintings almost like a signature. But in his newest work he lets go of that stamp and leaves his painting more bare. In some he has replaced bicycle for car. Slick and youthlul, these paintings could be on to something.
Only doors down lrom the Compass, an exhibition of the Scottish painter James Cowie has just opened at the Cyril Gerber Gallery. (Alice Bain)
