Artist Statement & CV

"These pictures can be nothing but observational," says Magrogan about his work. "They can only illustrate when and where they are made. It’s not about an idea; the moment being looked at or relived is unimportant. Defining the meaning of each picture is not really my task. The meaning of each work and where that meaning comes from will change with circumstance from minute to minute."

My role is of the maker, not the soothsayer. The objective of each work is to be made, to recognize that it had to be made. The product of the work is not imperative, but its existence is proof of an innate human force to produce - In this case paintings. I paint my dog because I have seventeen photographs of her on my phone. I paint a bowl of fruit because of still life and Bonnard, and blue because of a time that I saw blue."

Moments share a space exactly how they are placed. To me, this is the honesty in image making. Craft isn’t necessarily a universal standard, but a practice, which comes from inside a particular person, of assessing quality. Looking for ones own craft and allowing the work to locate itself truthfully and honestly within that is the work of an artist."
