Richard Meaghan – ‘No Current Bun’
Exhibition 17 April – 10 May 2008
Meaghan recently exhibited alongside Turner Prize winning artist’s Chris Ofili and Keith Tyson, in Exposed – Art and Culture in England’s North West.
Richard Meaghan was born in 1973 and studied Fine Art at Staffordshire University. He recently exhibited alongside Turner Prize winning artist’s Chris Ofili and Keith Tyson,in Exposed – Art and Culture in England’s North West. He lives in Liverpool and has upcoming exhibitions in Copenhagen, Hamburg and Berlin.
For this exhibition Richard presents paintings that oscillate between the artist’s memory and experience and allegorical and pictorial inventions.
Richard’s narrations are not linear, but rather associative and analytical, so that the works function like short stories, in which the plot is compressed into single images.
However, the fragments have to be pieced together and fall somewhere between dream and reality. Resulting in uncanny shimmerings, based on a careful study of our world that in turn suggests another.
“The show…will be based around my recent holidays. No Current Bun was a phrase my brother-in-law used when I was taking a break from the sun by staying in the shade… and contain elements of whatever is going on in my life at the time of the painting” RM
