Life on Venus III | The Organic, Timed Auction (106/106)


"My painting practice is material focused and experimental, investigating relationships between nature and chance. I am interested in the unpredictability of nature and how it can only be predicted to a certain point. Despite our advances in technology, nature is still the more powerful and I employ chance operations in my work to allude to this unpredictability. By combining control and chance factors, I manipulate my materials to create works alluding to earthly occurrences but with an unnatural, sci-fi twist. I investigate the politics of climatic events and how they are perceived cross culturally, sometimes as a blessing, sometimes as a tragedy. I am interested in how our world is never fully ours, we can never fully relax, outcomes for us can be determined by something greater, even more so due to climate change which is leading to these so called disasters becoming even more forceful and destructive. My work studies the forms of various forces of nature and I often draw inspiration from how digital mapping can capture the flow of geographical events. Often using man-made, industrial materials, I create work inspired by the earth’s natural forms, creating alternate worlds, usually in the form of installations, paintings and 3D paintings/sculptures. I like to use a lot of pinks and glitters in my work, playing with traditional feminine aesthetic in nontraditional ways." - Aoibhin Maguire, 2020
