Von Lintel Gallery Present Its Fourth Exhibition of New Paintings by Tim Maguire
Tim Maguire, Untitled (20110301), 2011, oil on canvas, 59 x 47 in (150 x 120 cm).
NEW YORK, NY.- Von Lintel Gallery present its fourth exhibition of new paintings by Australian artist Tim Maguire, on view from May 5 through June 4, 2011. Tim Maguire's large canvases are full of lush plant life—tightly cropped angles of multi-colored poppies in various stages of bloom and decay. Maguire's floral scenes are striking, yet for the artist the work is less about subject than the duality of process for which he is known.

Melding mechanical printmaking techniques with traditional painting, the artist flips normal order on its head. Working from his own photographs of nature, Maguire builds up layers of value and tone by applying only three successive colors of paint to the canvas: cyan, magenta and yellow—successfully mimicking the buildup of color used in the CMYK mode of digital printmaking.

From a distance, Maguire's bold imagery and riotous color coupled with the paintings' smooth surfaces makes them look almost like mechanical reproductions. It is only upon closer inspection that we notice the artist's hand, surfaces interrupted by brushstrokes and sprays of solvent. The elements of Maguire's compositions break down and become abstract, more about shape and color than something figurative.

Tim Maguire has exhibited extensively in Europe and Australia for more than two decades, including a recent one-person exhibition at Birmingham's Ikon Gallery, UK. His work is held by virtually every Australian museum and is included in major public and private collections throughout Europe. The artist lives and works in France and the United Kingdom.
