Focus on : Conor McGrady

From time to time, this forum will present the work of a comtemporary artist.

Conor McGrady is an Irish artist, now living in New York, whose work reflects his strong and passionate views on governmental oppression of poor or dissident people throughout the world. McGrady's work consists of large scale figurative oil paintings and an extensive body of smaller works on paper.

I first came across Conor's work at the Whitney Biennial in March, 2000 and have followed his progress ever since. You can say that here's a very young Luc Tuymans but I tend to regard Conor as the better of the two. After all, he's still relatively unknown and, on occasions, needs to make a living doing something other than, art.
