Martin Browne Contemporary is currently showing Tim McMonagle’s “Parade of Days,” on view through March 3, 2019. The exhibition presents a collection of the artist’s latest works including oil on linen paintings.
Born in New Zealand in 1971, McMonagle studied painting at the Victorian College of the Arts, graduating in 1994. Tim McMonagle has held 15 solo shows in commercial galleries in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth and has been in many group shows in state galleries as well as university and artist-run galleries.
Speaking about his works, the artist says, “I really enjoy getting lost in the painting process. I try to think of things to paint that are rich and can be read in any number of ways…So I’m playing with paint. I like the painting to exist as a series of marks, and it could exist as a series of marks. I hope that you could pull out a passage of paint, or a brush stroke, and the whole painting would collapse, like it is stacked. Each mark has its own entity.”
Tim McMonagle is a finalist in the 2012 Archibald Prize for his portrait of his friend, Michael Buxton, a Melbourne-based property developer and a passionate art collector. His work has been featured in several exhibitions at key galleries and museums, including the Rex Irwin Art Dealer and the Bendigo Art Gallery. McMonagle’s work has been offered at auction multiple times, with realized prices ranging from $4,327 USD to $13,202 USD, depending on the size and medium of the artwork.
Martin Browne Contemporary is dedicated to showing the finest in Australian and International Modern and Contemporary works of art.
The exhibition is on view through March 3, 2019, at Martin Browne Contemporary, 15 Hampden St, Paddington NSW 2021, Australia
