Collapse the Box: Brian Maguire

Artist Brian Maguire talks to Marianne O’Kane Boal about what inspires him.

His latest work, J’ACCUSE exhibited with Void was a new series of paintings, large works which interrogate the international war on and for drugs, the violence of a destabilised state and the darkness that permeates borderlands and trade between wealthy and poorer nations.

This new work extends Maguire’s investigation into the nature of violence in Juarez, which started with his work with the mothers and families of the victims of Juarez.
