For Laith McGregor, time is both a subject matter for his work, as well being a tangible measure of the artist’s labour. McGregor is best known for his labour-intensive, biro portraits, however in recent years his practice has expanded to include sculpture, video and print-making, and a range of subject matter. Borrowed Time brings together new and recent works by McGregor across a variety of media, focusing on ideas of time and labour. Laith McGregor is represented by Starkwhite, Auckland and Station Gallery, Melbourne. This exhibition is presented in partnership with Caloundra Regional Gallery.
