"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."
