New Paintings by Ian Healy and Derek McGuire.
Patriothall Gallery, Edinburgh
Exhibition dates: 26 September – 7 October
Opening times: 12-6pm Tues-Sun
‘2 contemporary painters who deal with the figure in paint, working on the boundary of the abstract and representational divides.’
‘Ian Healy’s paintings stem from sourced images, where protagonists exist in ambiguous situations. Painted in a loose expressive style, ultimately the work is about the medium and how it raises questions about representation and identity. ‘
‘Derek McGuire’s paintings come into being slowly and in large groups, skirting around to find surprises emerging from changing scales, subject matter and styles.’
