Terry Haggerty: Transcend
Terry Haggerty (*1970 in London), who lives and works in Berlin, creates paintings, drawings and large scale wall drawings that expand the vocabulary of abstraction: he combines the reductive elements of Minimalism with the phenomenological approaches of Op Art in a new way. In their reduction to what is mostly monochrome color and their formal simplification, Haggerty’s varying line/stripe combinations oscillates between the planimetric structure of the surface and the illusory perception of three-dimensionality. The incredible precision of Haggerty’s handiwork is also responsible for the impressive effect of his pictures with an appearance of quasi mechanical perfection. Transcend presents the artists oeuvre from the late nineties to the present and represents his ingenious synthesis of Minimal Arts striving towards a conceptual order and Op Arts prosaic play with perception and the illusion.
