“Professor of nothing. Student of Dreams.”- Gareth Maguire

 

Gareth’s figurative paintings feature fragmented portraits and insurgent images from his life, past and present. He recontextualizes the works of old masters, employing esthetics that echo Basquiat, Bacon, Dubuffet. His work illustrates suggestive dichotomies such as love versus hate and war versus peace. His social commentary ranges from simple and humorous to insightful and highly provocative.
