Artist statement 2014 Cate McGuire is a Toronto artist with an extensive and varied background in art and design; having graduated with both a bachelor of fine arts degree from Concordia in 1989, and a post-graduate degree of architecture in 1995 from UBC. For the most part, McGuire uses her own photography, found images, paint, and bits of paper to piece together images that create an architecture that is a stand in for the built world we live in. Her goal is to refresh places, to invent or to recombine them, in the hope that this makes us notice what we may take for granted about where we choose to live and what we choose to build. Using architecture and landscape to represent social constructs and emotional attachments are the keys to McGuire’s work. Cate McGuire has been actively producing art for the past thirty years. She has shown her work at the Artist Project, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibit, the Elora Centre for the Arts, and other venues. A survey of work can be seen at Davis Canadian Arts, in Stratford Ontario, on an ongoing basis. McGuire’s work can be found in the permanent collections of Teleglobe Canada, Concordia University, John Abbott College, as well as in many corporate and private collections in Canada, the United States and abroad. www.catemcguireart.com
