Terry Hag­gerty

1970 born London, England
Lives and works in Berlin, Germany

(fromVon Bartha Basel gallery) Terry Hag­gerty was born in Lon­don and stud­ied at the Chel­tenham School of Art, Glouces­ter­shire. He has exhib­ited widely at gal­leries and muse­ums around the world, includ­ing Sikkema Jenk­ins, New York; Max Het­zler, Berlin; Ham­mer Museum, Los Ange­les; Aldrich Museum, Conecti­cut; and PS1, Long Island City. Com­mis­sions include wall draw­ings for Dal­las Cow­boys Sta­dium, Munich Re, Lon­don, and pri­vate col­lec­tions in the US and Ger­many. Hag­gerty is the recip­i­ent of sev­eral awards includ­ing the For-Site foun­da­tion Award(2009), John Anson Kit­tredge Award (2003); and the Natwest Art Prize (1999). The concept of the trompe-l’oeil; the interplay between reality and illusion, has always fascinated artists. In this way, with the simple gesture of curving lines, Haggerty is able to create complex illusions, garnering both volume and depth. The artist carefully considers ambiguous forms and likenesses, to familiar indicators of space such as ledges, edges, corner and gaps. Nevertheless, the viewer is not only drawn to Haggerty’s paintings as a result of the suggestion of plasticity, but also owing to their cool, smooth, machine-like surface perfection.

(from www.sikkemajenkinsco.com gallery) Terry Haggerty’s paintings and large-scale wall drawings are rooted in Minimalism’s elimination of non-essential forms, and in the phenomenology of optical illusion and perception put forth by Op art. The British-born artist, who currently lives and works in Berlin, is known for a body of work that Rosalind Krauss has referred to as the tangible representation of a “centuries old face-off between line and color.” Two-dimensional surfaces are covered in serial patterns of light and dark stripes, forming geometric compositions of almost industrial perfection. The artist’s handiwork lies in the edges and center of the paintings, where Haggerty disrupts the lines’ abstracted mechanical forms and bends them in an opposing direction. This gesture gives the pristine, flat surfaces an illusory, three-dimensional quality. With prolonged viewing, the abstract forms seem to shift and oscillate.
