Alan Magee : Maine master( Visual )

His paintings invite wonder at the inherent dignity and beauty of simple objects such as letters, tools, and stones that are imbued with a history of communication, labor, and time ... But [he] also produces another kind of work, his monotypes for which the test is to meet their gaze. The faces in these monotypes bear witness to the world's history of oppression and cruelty ... This portrait of Alan Magee is one of the on-going series of the Maine Masters Project, documentaries of Maine artists interviewed in their studios discussing their lives and work."--Container
