"David Eager Maher's works institute and inhabit an ambiguous, meditative space that looks back
but is equally open to premodernity and the hyperreality of postmodernity."
Aidan Dunne, The Irish TImes. 2016
"Within David Eager Maher’s compositions, boundaries between lived interiors and fantastical
exotica are in constant flux. They exemplify a merging of worlds natural and domestic, dream
and reality, ostentation and reticence. Within them there is a conflation of living, collecting, and
art making. In manyways Eager Maher’s compositions describe dreams and follies, mediated
through colours and contours in their surroundings."
Ingrid Lyons 2016
