"Fragments of Fleeting Thought: Andrea Maguire"
2007-08-29 until 2007-09-22
Red Head Gallery
In Maguire’s most recent works called Fragments of Fleeting Thought, she explores the nature of images and how they convey meaning. The images she uses are juxtaposed in ritualized, Zen-like compositions to evoke new contexts out of which provoking new dialogues may arise. Andrea Maguire lives and works in Toronto where she has both taught and holds an active studio practice. She has exhibited extensively in both Canada and Internationally including exhibitions in New York, Chicago and Dublin. In 2004 she was invited to Japan to exhibit her installation, Time, Space, Thought, and another installation, In the Presence of Absence was exhibited at the Toronto Art Expo.
She received her MFA from Norwich University and her work is included in the collections of Ernst & Young, Dieckmann & Assoc. (Chicago), Magna International, Nesbitt-Burns and Ontario Hydro. A recent solo exhibition called Between Creation and Chaos was held at the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery at the University of Toronto.
Located in downtown Toronto, The Red Head Gallery has been presenting challenging contemporary visual art for over seventeen years.
