 Tim Maguire: Dice Abstracts

Description

The urbane works of Australian artist Tim Maguire, based in France, UK and Sydney, are often cinematic in scale and distinctive for their rich colouration. His luminous paintings are created with just three pure colours – yellow, magenta and cyan – while his dazzling prints, often produced in collaboration with French master printer, Franck Bordas, produce colour saturation and light effects that are mesmerising.

Tim Maguire's new series of prints, Dice Abstracts, draw on imagery from his 1980s early works – simple landscape elements such as points of light on darkness, horizons, bands of light and reflection. From here, Maguire devised the Dice Abstracts concept.
These simple elements were initially drawn in charcoal on textured paper and scanned. Using the throw of dice, the elements can be combined randomly to determine the base image, its horizontal/vertical orientation and positive/negative nature. Repeated three times – one throw for each of the three primary colours red, blue and yellow – the three coloured images are combined digitally.

In total, there are 13,824 possible Dice Abstracts. In the parameters of Maguire's project, each potential iteration can only be printed once.

The exhibition also features painting, video and digital works.
