About John McGiff

McGiff_J_1.

The painting series entitled “Rag Houses” is influenced by Indian Miniature paintings, where flat bright colors and intricately patterned surfaces create a heightened, sacred space for a narrative to play itself out in. The house is first a dwelling, but no less powerfully a metaphor for both the individual body and the achievements of culture that all civilizations have left as the mark of their passage. Think of the Egyptian tomb paintings, Minoan frescos, the stained glass windows of Christiandom…The story I am interested in exploring in these paintings entwines time, nature and the human presence. We embrace the beautiful and seek empowerment and, although we are mortal, the door to a spiritual consciousness opens in unpredictable places. So there is the potential promise of deeper connection to the spirit everywhere, but we are also willfully blind to seeking balance with nature and our place in the whole. In this regard the paintings are an eyebrow raised to our complicity in destroying both ourselves and the life around us, while holding high the hope that the beautiful engenders.
