Lives and works in New York

As a painter, sculptor, choreographer, and musician, Keegan McHargue is concerned with the tension between tragedy and comedy that lies behind the banality of everyday life. “Humor is a large part of my work,” he has said. “[…] The human condition can be tragic, but […] you have to occasionally laugh about it all.” McHargue’s semi-abstract mixed-media paintings and colorful assemblages blend identifiable figures with objects of the artist’s imagination; he is particularly inspired by music for his use of color and abstraction.(ART SY)
