Elizabeth Magill: Green Light Wanes
Library Shelf Location 18.MAGI
Publication Date 2010
Description Magill grew up in Northern Ireland but lives and works in London. She began exhibiting in the mid-1980s. She is a painter of prodigious versatility and inventiveness whose work has always drawn from a wide range of visual sources. While she has often integrated photographic materials and processes into her painting, in a number of novel ways, her primary fidelity has been to the medium of painting, in all its bewildering variety. Relatively small in scale compared to previous work, Magill’s new paintings represent an exciting new departure in the evolution of her practice. Narrative and form slips in and out of recognition and focus and each work is a wonderfully dense world of that which Magill has become renowned for; a hybrid of glimmering abstraction, haunting figuration, romantic landscape, and an ever creative and engaging play between depiction and suggestion.
