Tim Maguire Biography

Since 2006, Tim Maguire has worked in London and the United Kingdom. Critically acclaimed and acknowledged internationally, Maguire is one of Australia’s most successful artists, exhibiting large-scale paintings that impress in their photo-realist imagery and in the detail of their painterly construction.

Maguire initially exhibited abstract paintings characterised by an intuitive application of colour and treatment of light. However, he achieved national prominence as the recipient of the Moët and Chandon Prize in 1993 and his cinematic figurative paintings of flowers from this period move confidently between abstraction and naturalism with the viewer drawn to the detail of their surfaces and colour. Recently, Maguire has begun to work with digital materials, exhibiting photographs and videos of water running through imposed levels of separate colours.

Tim Maguire was born in the United Kingdom, but moved to Sydney with his family in 1959 where he later studied at East Sydney Technical College (1980-82), the Sydney College of the Arts (1984) and in Germany at the Düsseldorf, Kunstakademie (1985).
