The museum is delighted to welcome local artist David McGuire with an exhibition of paintings, prints and poetry.
‘The subject of this exhibition is urban landscape, viewed through the lens of age and decay in buildings and places that have particular meaning to me, and to which I have attempted to chronicle the change of state in their materiality. In this narrative I have also dealt with isolation, combining painting with poetry, taking single elements of a structure, such as a window or a rainwater pipe, viewed in seclusion.
Viewers may find their minds attuned to past events as these once new components approach the end of their useful lives, allowing their reflections to permeate deeper into their own bank of memories’.
