JULIAN MEAGHER

Julian Meagher is a 34 year old Sydney-based artist. Six years ago he left work as a medical doctor to pursue painting full-time. His work explores the binary nature of contemporary Australian masculinity.

He paints what he calls 'male still lives'. Orchids feature strongly in his work, their name deriving from the Greek Orchida, meaning testicle.  The distinct use of shades of pink colours the shadows cast by these symbols of man, and whimsically explore the irony in modern masculinity. Meagher is interested in the colour theory of gender association as well as present day tribal colour associations.

In 2009 and 2012 he was the recipient of the New Work Grant from the Australia Council of the Arts. He has been finalist multiple times in the Doug Moran Portrait Prize, Salon des Refuses, Metro Art Prize, Blake Prize for Religious Art and the RBS Emerging Artist Prize. He has exhibited at the Melbourne International Art Fair in 2010 and 2012, the Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair in 2010 and Scope Miami in 2011 and 2012.
