PRESS RELEASE:



ARTIST: Brian MacGregor



SHOW TITLE:  "Mixed Mirrors"



WHERE: S.P.A.C.E.Gallery on Henry St. Savannah



OPENING Reception: April 4, 2014


Length of show:  March 12 - April 25



                                                                                                   “Mixed Mirror”

ARTIST STATEMENT:


             MacGregor’s “Mixed Mirrors” is a series inspired by the mixed frame style he has been developing and hand-crafting the past six years for his paintings. The concept of the mixed frames spawned out of his main inspiration, the Collective Unconscious. For most of his art MacGregor collects hundreds of dreams from different people in multiple languages from around the world to illustrate the Collective Unconscious in a visual metaphor. He does this by collaging multiple dreams into his paintings, then drawing and painting oils over top of them.            

              Following the concept of using multiple dreams from multiple sources, it was only natural that his frames would follow a similar path and match the paintings. Being the type of artist to build every aspect of his work himself he began collecting frames from other artists and framers who no longer had use for them. After collecting nearly four hundred frames, frame sticks, and corners he was able to achieve a critical mass of recycled pieces to be able to bring his concept to life. Now with enough variety of frames the artist has made it virtually impossible to repeat himself, so that every frame is 100% original and its’ on work of art. After acknowledging the frames as their own original art form MacGregor decided to create a series where he could push himself sculpturally which is how the mirrors were born.

           “There is a certain magic in creating a work of art where the viewer’s literally sees themselves in the art. It is a concept too attractive, not to explore.”
