Paul McGrane

I make two-dimensional works which seek to explore minimalism, through the use of linear and abstract mark making. The objects are carved and scored on MDF and wood with both industrial and traditional etching tools. My work also incorporates the use of household paints, acrylic paints and varnishes. The completed works are, in a sense, ‘opened up,’ revealing their inner selves having undergone an additive and subtractive process. These pieces serve as a testimony to the operations they have been subjected to, acting as archival objects that reveal past actions and procedures.
