About this Artwork
This work on paper is about Minimalism and exploring minimalist ideas of small moments where one thing has an effect on the whole.
On a sheet of gessoed paper, two disparate mediums —a pencil line and a colored shape made with paint stick —work together to form a harmonious composition. The line and shape are dependent on one another to form the whole.
McCagg's work is informed and influenced by formal elements such as line and space, which provide an underlying aesthetic vocabulary for her compositions.
