Michael McGuire at Las Manos Gallery
McGuire’s line and precision show the inspiration he gained from the architectural world he studied as a graduate student. Using a complex system of simple shapes McGuire controls the negative space and forces the users eye to examine the intricate workings of his structures.
These simple pen on paper drawings are given a depth made apparent only by the slight shifting of lines. On first glance these meticulous drawings give off a simple air, however, on closer inspection the density of thought put into each line is increasingly apparent. These technical, and controlled works have the distinct touch of the man behind the architecture.
