Vista Drive is the result of McMonagle’s fascination with his environment in particular with gumtrees which he has been observing over the past five years. When describing these new works McMonagle says of the gumtrees, “Contorted limbs and twisted trunks bring each its own personality, kinetic and stable at once. Its robust strength and its struggle to hold itself together despite falling limbs and an onslaught from the elements...” His observations of the environment combined with his imagination result in lyrical paintings infused with humour and a distinctive elegance.
