Alan Magee - Graphic and Tapestry

Alan Magee - Graphic and Tapestry

One of today's most exceptionally talented and highly acclaimed artists,

Alan Magee's intense scrutiny of visual objects and uncanny ability to capture

forms in nature are fully demonstrated in this exhibition, which included

large-scale Jacquard tapestries, woven by a Belgian loom to Magee's precise

digital specifications, and graphics.

Alan Magee was born in Newton, Pennsylvania, and in the mid-1960s

enrolled at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, and later the Philadelphia

College of Art. Dissatisfied with the absence of realistic drawing in the Fine Art

department, Magee found himself preferring the level of meticulous detail explored

in the Illustration department. His thirst for exquisite realism led to an early career

as creator of book covers and illustrations for magazins such as Time, the Atlantic

and the New York Times Magazine. In the 1970s the artist relocated to Maine

and began choosing his own subjects from nature and industry, using his skill as

an illustrator to create fine art.

Magee's work has been the subject of eight monographs, and has been featured in

solo exhibitions at the James A. Michener Museum, Doylestown, Pennsylvania;

the Portland Museum of Art; the Farnsworth Art Museum, Rockland-Maine; and

the Frye Art Museum Seattle; Washington, among others.

His work is included in the public collections of the de Young Museum,

San Francisco, California; the Arkansas Art Center, Little Rock; the Art Institute

of Chicago, Illinois; the Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio;

and in many private collections.
