Acclaimed Australian artist Tim Maguire has taken the printing process to the core of his work as a painter, making both figurative and abstract paintings using the layering of colour according to the conventional method of commercial colour printing. For Ikon he has produced new works, based on photographs and video; huge digital prints to be hung unframed directly onto the gallery walls. Depicting fragments of still-lifes and landscapes – specifically, flowers and falling snow – these sumptuous images celebrate the ethereal nature of beauty. In addition there is a series of smaller photographs and a video capturing the movement of water through the superimposition of separated pure colours.
