I am...
Richard Meaghan was born in 1970 and trained at Staffordshire University where he studied Painting and Fine Art. MA Liverpool School of Art.
On graduating, Meaghan was awarded a travel grant to study Renaissance Art in Italy. The resulting work was awarded first prize in the Sefton Open, followed shortly with his first solo Public exhibition at the Atkinson Art gallery, Southport.

Meaghan was recently chosen as one of three emerging artists to exhibit alongside Turner art Prize winners Chris Ofili and Keith Tyson in ‘Exposed- Art and Culture in England’s North West’. He has future exhibitions planned for Liverpool, London, Copenhagen, Denmark and Hamburg and Berlin, Germany.

Recently Meaghan has concentrated on curatorial collaborations. With Manchester based artist David Hancock: Le Petit Paysage (Liverpool Biennial 2004), Jerusalem (Dean Clough Galleries 2006), I’ll be Your Mirror (Gallery Primo Alonso, London 2007). With Liverpool based artist Andrew Foulds: Kapellmeister pulls a doozy (London and Berlin 2008/9), One can often be thwarted by some antidisestablishmentarianism (Gallery Primo Alonso, London 2008/9). And with Danish artist Rene Holm at galerie bn24, Hamburg, Germany (Are we still here?), galleri Slugen and galerie Wolfsen, Denmark (2008).

About my artwork
Richard Meaghan’s paintings are a multi-layered experience that oscillate between extremes. They are invented and are an amalgamation of a number of differing experiences that revolve around memory, making use of allegorical and pictorial inventions and references from contemporary art and art history. Meaghan's narrations are not linear, but rather associative and analytical, so that the works function like short stories, in which the plot is compressed into single images. However, the fragments have to be pieced together and thus can seemingly fall somewhere between dream and reality. The resulting paintings appear as visions of somewhere familiar yet strange, uncanny shimmerings based on careful study of our world that in turn suggests another.

"I’m interested in the whole history of painting as a kind of dictionary of ideals that needs to be ransacked as completely as possible. A need for all the possible characteristics of painting, from the retarded to the sophisticated, to be simultaneously represented, as though the whole past lives of the medium were flashing before our eyes." (nigel cooke)

Richard Meaghan’s recent paintings are derived from his interest in ideas of globalisation, a process by which the people of the world are united into a single society and function together. The individuals within the paintings play some small part in this wider economic, technological, socio-cultural and political narrative, the unwitting germs in a much larger global disease.

Richard has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and his recent shows include a number of curatorial collaborations with other artists, writers and curators.

These collaborations have resulted in new work involving new media and film. This has developed alongside his normal concerns and ideas of painting and installation.
Artists I like
Lots and lots but contemporary artists at the mo have to be Neo Rauch, Matthias Weischer and Daniel Richter with a bit of Nigel Cooke thrown in on top of Chris Ofili and Mamma Andersson. Oh Henning Kles, Dexter Dalwood, Tal R, Thomas Demand, Doug Aitken and Arturo Di Stefano and Peter Doig. I also love and keep refering back to Giotto, Botticelli, Piera de la Francesca, Goya, Millais, Manet, Gauguin, Matisse, Munch, Bonnard, Lanyon, Heron, Hockney, Michael Andrews and Alex Katz.
Interests
art, books and footy (Liverpool FC) and tennis

I know what you mean but it's better than FB and at least they are not trying to steal your copyright. IMHO the quality of debate has deteriorated too. In truth I have a bunch of friends here that wouldn't all move elsewhere. That's a pretty piss poor reason for staying so let us hope the site improves.

When he is on the case Nick Tong is pretty good. I was beginning to feel like a lost lone voice in the wilderness - so I have given up moaning although Nick did correct quite a lot of what was wrong. You're right though - it would be better if it worked.
