About the artist.

Gerard Maguire was born in Belfast in 1963, he graduated from Queens University Belfast in 1986. He is a self-taught Irish artist working in landscapes which aim to capture an atmosphere, using gestural brush marks. Through his scenes of rough seas, wild skies sandy shores and endless moods, shows the viewer his unique interpretation of the beauty of landscape. He does not paint directly from the landscape itself or from photographs, rather from memory and allows the picture to evolve without any predetermined plans Dickon Hall – Art Historian and Curator (Jan 2003)
