Ferris McGuinty’s work is an ongoing investigation into the notions of form, line, balance and colour. There is rarely a specific reference point, although the works do borrow from a wide lexicon of visual culture.
The work resonates through a language that is common across the spectrum of architecture, painting, sculpture and design, and by paring back to the basic principles, it serves to condense elements of these varying influences. What the work reflects through these connections isn’t a conscious reference, it’s more a symbiosis.
Engaged in a similar form to Haiku poetry, seemingly disparate elements in the work are cut and juxtaposed, as if compressing a wider experience, emphasising simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.
McGuinty’s work is held in private collections in UK, US, Germany and Australia.
