These abstracts, based on free flowing line and the creation of space, are a new departure for my art. I have been experimenting with the use of marker pens and various types of paper and card for some years and these are a development of that process. I have become increasingly preoccupied with the notion of reducing form and space to a few principles and seeking to exemplify the notion of beauty to an elegant and simple format.

I was born in Liverpool and was educated at the University of Manchester, Swansea University and the Polytechnic of Wales where I studied History, Philosophy and Intellectual and Art History (MA). I have lived and worked in Ireland, Germany, Holland and the UK as a barman, labourer, soldier, Aircraft sealer, Trade Marks Examiner, Ministerial Policy Adviser in Trade & Industry (London), Head of International Relations at the Welsh Office and Principal Private Secretary to the Presiding Officer at the National Assembly for Wales. I left the Civil Service in 2005 and dedicated myself to art and writing. I post my abstract work on this page, which is a major strand of my artistic activity, where I am preoccupied with reducing my art and the nature of beauty to its essence - to simplicity and elegance. Such works are spontaneous, intuitive and completely original. The curve and competence of the lines in these abstract works is dependent on the smoothness and swiftness of their execution. I use a variety of inks, including indian ink and also acrylic paints for these and acid free paper to ensure these artworks will last for hundreds of years. These works are signed either Maguire (early works) or MJ Maguire. For my other work, as Mark John Maguire, please see my Saatchi page or a quick google search for that name will quickly identify my numerous internet presences! I have published a novel, The Night Traveller (MJ Maguire) in 2010 and I have published and recorded many poems which are widely available in numerous publications and online sources. I regularly publish articles in journals on a diverse number of subjects from International Affairs and Ethics to Metaphysics, the Theory of Knowledge and Modern Art.
