MacGregor has his own public studio art gallery in downtown Savannah and is currently on display in many locations throughout.
This series like most of MacGregor’s artwork centers around the concept of the Collective Unconscious, in which he attempts to depict this realm by collecting thousands of different people’s handwritten dreams and gluing them into the backgrounds of his work. In the “Spiral Rose” series the shape of the inside of the rose is to mimic the shape of the universe. The drawn line of the petals is to mimic the orbits of the planets and the center, the sun. The idea being a refection of the macro in the micro.
