MW

The MW series is a bold representation of Men, Women and the colour of life. It uses light and darkness to distinguish between the two, entwining them across the canvas. Reflecting the diversity of our cultures and understanding that underneath we are all made of the same components, borne of the bio-chemical soup of life. 


Central to the AGR brand of art is the ideas of synthesis, rotation and perspective. We are collectively a sum far greater than our parts - a sum greater than its parts creates our modern world. That taking one thing in isolation will lead to false conclusions. That isolation of factors is not the answer, that we are stronger together than apart. 


Through rotation we see that we become the sum of our freedoms. Those that we choose to protect, those that get taken from us, and those that slip off the horizon. A gentle head nod to Sigma (sum of) and the wordplay of three/freedom - we are a sum of our freedoms.

Perspective is highlighted within the details of each picture. Through shape and shade it is possible to ‘change’ the direction of motifs. What looks to be a left hand corner, with a bit of concentration, can become a right hand corner, sometimes only briefly. The magic of this creates an inert picture that can move.


The same formula is used to create each piece using an 8x5 grid for the MW with the same base duality of darkness and light in the MW. From this starting point, shape creation begins and the modification to the basic structure can elicit all manner of changes. It aims to highlight individuality, from the foundation’s of life, to the complexity of of sex and sexulaisation.


New life comes from the relationship of men and women. Birth, aside from the exceptions, is formed in the bonds of men and women. History is full of darkness and our future is our choice.
