Marc Guinan

Beyond Representation


Marc Guinan’s construction background continually enhances his practical based practice, which is grounded in painting and mainly focused through a Post Minimalist lens. Through the creation of experimental and sculptural forms, it is his intention to stretch the boundaries of conventional thinking about painting. Always exploring schematic, sculptural environments through the medium of paint, he invite’s a dialogue of provocation through proportion, form and colour. His work always has an under current of questioning around traditional ideas of display within the exhibition space and in particular its relationship to painting.  His work explores the traditional limits of the physical properties of paint, pushing the boundaries between the medium, fracture and modes of application.
