Magee’s practice explores the sculptural potential of objects, and the relationship between artistic process and everyday life. As he modifies objects, their function is negated. They then oscillate between their original and altered states, remaining in the condition of not quite right, yet not quite wrong.
One can think of his works in a way that traverses traditional art processes and absurdist pottering. The works aim to bring sensitivity to both physical materials and the hidden facets of human existence.
The casual ways in which we assert ourselves over the things that surround us are one of the main driving points in his practice. Combined with his interest in utility and waste, labour and consequence he investigates the use, or usefulness of the artist and the object.
