“Macqueen’s art, I’m tempted to say, is basically an art of sympathy, for what it most vividly demonstrates is how enchanting the world may be when it is looked at with amusement and affection.” The Age, Gary Catalano, 27th August 1986. Review of Mary Macqueen exhibition and book launch at Charles Nodrum Gallery, Richmond, 1986
