Biografia

Nato nel 1982, Portland, Oregon. Vive e lavora a New York, USA.

Keegan McHargue è un artista americano autodidatta. È noto per i suoi disegni e pitture astratte ed illusorie. Nei suoi dipinti combina elementi onirici figurativi per poi stravolgere le regole della prospettiva.

McHargue si concentra nella tensione tra la tragedia e la commedia. Lo stile appiattito dell’artista evoca il disegno di un bambino, quale modo di esprimere la sua comprensione del mondo. McHargue è interessato al subconscio e raffigura scene di fantasia per ricostruire gli incidenti della vita quotidiana.

Nel 2003, McHargue ha la sua prima mostra personale a New York alla Wrong Gallery. Da allora è rappresentato dalla Fredericks & Freiser Gallery di New York. Ha partecipato a numerose mostre personali e collettive in tutto il mondo, come Jack Hanley Gallery, San Francisco; Deitch Projects, New York; Hiromi Yoshii Gallery, Tokyo; Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Parigi; MACRO Museum, Roma; DESTE Foundation, Atene. Le use opere sono parte di importanti collezioni pubbliche permanenti tra cui: Deste Foundation of the Contemporary Arts, Atene; Judith Rothschild Foundation | Drawing Collection, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA.
