In 2019, Brian Maguire visited Dr Greg Hess, Chief Medical Examiner for Pima County, Tucson, Arizona. Dr Hess gave the artist access to some thousand visual records of migrant lives lost in the crossing from South and Central America and Mexico, into the United States.

Each discovery of a body in the desert creates a case and digital images. Using a selection from this photographic source, Maguire began a new series of paintings, acknowledging the many unidentified victims who undertook this perilous journey.

Maguire’s most recent bodies of work directly confront issues of migration, displacement and human dignity in the face of the current global unrest.
