Born in 1975 in Sydney, Linton Meagher studied art at the Julian Ashton School and at the University of Sydney, completing a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Fine Arts in 1996.
Meagher’s work explores the ways that objects, such as pills, surgical scalpels and bullet shells, can be taken out of their usual context and presented in a way that challenges the viewer to question their wider meaning in society. Repellent objects become objects of beauty and the repetition of objects allows for the creation of images that are often at odds with the individual object. Meagher’s work has evolved from traditional oil on canvas works to mixed media works using resin and perspex.
His work has previously been exhibited at Maunsell Wickes at Barry Stern Galleries (2007), the blank_space gallery (2005), the Sheraton On The Park Hotel Ten Young Artists Exhibitions (1998 and 1999), the Global Arts Factory (1997) and the Tin Sheds Gallery (1995). In addition to numerous private collections in Australia, London and Paris, corporate collections and commissions include Xenos, T. & C. Business Consulting and the World Health Organisation.
