Thomas Macgregor is an emerging figurative painter, Trained in Scotland and now based in London, MacGregor is currently enrolled in a post graduate studio Programme with alternative art school ‘Turps Banana’.
This Exhibition comprises a selection of recent work from his time in Bolivia, Where he was granted Access to the ‘Centro de Instrucción de Tropas Especiales’ (Special Troops Training centre for the parachute infantry regiment) This is not a critical view of the Armed forces or any specific comment on the Bolivian army although aspects of this are reflected and the work does comment on the wider implications of war.
This Work is more of a reflection on Masculinity and the mundane within a confined environment of the army barracks and an exercise for him in expanding the parameters of how he uses paint.
