In his latest exhibition Tim Maguire juxtaposes six new paintings of poppies under a blue summer sky with a suite of six lightboxes of brooding land and skyscapes. In both the paintings and lightboxes, Maguire continues to utilize his ‘colour separation’ technique whereby radiant layers of yellow, magenta and cyan are thinly applied sequentially, each layer being splashed with solvents before it dries. By making each layer of paint translucent, Maguire seeks to make his painting process transparent so that every gesture and mark is visible, the paint hovering and glowing like luminous dew drops on petals.
