In Tim Maguire’s new exhibition, Transient, he continues to investigate the insubstantial, the ephemeral, the fragile and the fugitive in his painting practice.

He utilizes 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. These new paintings are reflections on water, water lilies, and close ups of almond blossom.
