Biography from Corrigan Gallery LLC:
Surgeon Richard Hagerty began painting before attending medical school. He is a self taught artist who draws his surreal, fantastical imagery from dreams, mythology, history, science, and stories.  Painting, he believes, is the language of the unconscious; the act of painting itself is as close as we get to dreaming in the conscious state. 

He works in a variety of media, including pen and ink, watercolor and oil.  He has been a working artist for thirty years.  This former Charleston City Councilman is known for his fantasy paintings in which he utilizes free association with the goal of crafting psychologically potent dreamscapes.  His work recalls that of Dali, Bosch, Brueghel, Kandinsky, Miro, Klee and Chagall.  The symbolic art movement preceding World War II and the influence of the iconographic mark-making of the Latin American and Asian cultures is evident in his work.

Often his work is based on the artist's personal myth experiences and their connection to the collective unconscious.  His paintings are intended to capture the viewer’s attention with movement, color and a complex story tantalizes far beyond a simple viewing of the work.  

Hagerty as the 2007 Children’s Festival Poster Artist with his painting Dream Children.”  His work has appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions, throughout the southeastern region, in New York and is in the collection of the Gibbes Museum of Art. 

He has been selected as the Piccolo Spoleto poster artist in 1984 and 1990, and was the 2003 Piccolo Spoleto Invitational Exhibition artist.

Artist Statement:
"Painting is the language of the unconscious.  The act of painting itself is as close as we get to dreaming in the conscious state.  Since time immemorial man has recognized the importance of dreams.  As an artist, I'm not so much interested in the interpretation of dreams as I am in taking the visual journey they open to us."
