Michael McGuire - Grid Variations

Michael McGuire - Asymmetrical Grid #3 - Acrylic Paint on Arches Watercolor Paper - 40 x 25.75 inches 

Michael McGuire has been using the grid as an inspiration for years. One of his techniques for exploring variations in grids involves the computer. He will photograph an existing grid based drawing and then in Photoshop create multiple iterations of that grid. He works quickly and intuitively, making many versions, saving every step, and editing afterwards. If something strikes him as appealing he will then spend the time to execute the drawing.

Since returning from an extended stay in Puerto Rico Michelle has been deep in her studio making a variety of new work inspired by her visit to one of the places she considers Home. The new work while varying in size and structure, reflects some of the sights and experiences of her recent travels. The reception will run from 6 until 10pm on Friday, January 30, 2015 and take place at Las Manos Gallery at 1515 W. Foster in Chicago. Please join us in celebrating Michelle's return to Chicago with a little drink and music. Hope you can make it.
