Laith McGregor’s multidisciplinary practice draws on illusionary material with an ongoing inquiry into contemporary portraiture, semiotics of the guise, notions of the self & the complexities of what it means to be human. The figures and landscapes that he represents derive from both factual and fictitious realms. The qualities that result from McGregor’s practice highlight the grey areas that exist between fiction and non-fiction. McGregor has exhibited widely throughout Australia & overseas, most recently in Art Los Angeles Contemporary with Starkwhite, 'The Red Queen' MONA Hobart, 'Melbourne Now' National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 'Physical Video' Gallery of Modern Art Queensland & 'Freehand: Recent Australian Drawing' Heide Museum of Art, Melbourne. His work is exhibited in various institutions & private collections including The National Gallery of Australia, The Museum of Contemporary Art & The Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland. He has received a number of significant residencies & prizes, most recently the HIAP Helsinki residency through the Australian Arts Council, the National Works on Paper Prize, Mornington Regional Gallery & the Collie Print Trust Printmaking Fellowship at the Australian Print Workshop.
