Ubu 3 2015, acrylic & oil on canvas, 180.0 x 200.0 cm, finalist 2016 Geelong Contemporary Art Prize, Geelong  Art Gallery


Marie Hagerty is currently exhibiting at the Canberra Contemporary Art SpaceGorman Arts Centre, Braddon – until 19 November 2016. The exhibition, Blue Blooded, features recent works on canvas and is Hagerty’s second solo show at CCAS.


‘Separated tonally by line and colour, floating in, around and over each other, her merging and elegantly parting shapes are like the translucent liquids of a lava lamp as they begin to warm and perform. The epitome of lyricism, Hagerty’s paintings express the artist’s vision and imagination through the sublime beauty of harmonious form.’ 


Marie Hagerty’s oeuvre shifts between figuration and abstraction to create alluring images arrested in movement, space and time. Her mingled forms and amorphous figures appear sculptural as shapes seemingly and inconspicuously push away from one another into the foreground.


Marie Hagerty is a finalist in the 2016 Geelong Contemporary Art Prize, exhibiting at Geelong Gallery, Victoria until 13 November.


Karen Woodbury Fine Art has a selection work by Marie Hagerty available to view by appointment.
