Marie Hagerty
New works 2007

21 August – 8 Sept 2007

Tim Olsen Gallery


….what really makes these works so effective is the optical trickery
they employ. By the subtle shading of the squares and a clever
manipulation of the black lines separating them, Hagerty creates a
beguiling impression of three dimensionality. As you stand there, each
plane seems to push out from the one 'behind' it, so that each painting
has it's own aura of quiet movement and mystery.'
