Bio: Megan Squire is a painter from Preston, Lancashire and a recent graduate of Painting and Printmaking at The Glasgow School of Art. In her practice, image-making is an act of self-positioning and constellating the self. Her paintings are manifestations of self-made tropes — they are oblique yet personal references to observational and imaginary motifs in her life.
She works predominantly with water-soluble oils and gouache on canvas, diluting the paint and adding it in increments with a fine brush so that it sits within the grain of the canvas. The realisation of these tropes in material form (as art-objects) becomes yet another aspect of their existence in her constellation.
