Abstract Expressionist

Abstract expressionism is a style of painting shaped by the inner turmoil of abstract artists but accentuated by the devastation wrought by World War II. They rejected naturalistic representation in favor of frenetic surfaces marked primarily by violent brushwork. The Abstract Expressionists first established themselves as an American art movement with international influence. They put New York at the center of the Western art world, a role Paris had previously had for over 200 years.

About Ian Maguire

My work channels intensely personal emotions and memories through my art's physical, spontaneous, and improvised creation process; it involves many layers of addition and subtraction, throwing, slashing, dripping, and dragging paint across the canvas. I often remove parts of the canvas through a combination of sanding, scraping, and erasing — repeating the process countless times to reveal the life cycle of the canvas beneath. While my work is profoundly personal and tireless, my frenetic brushwork and clashes of color invite the viewer to experience their emotional reaction and discover different interpretations and meanings throughout the canvas.
