About this Artwork
This small, minimalist painting is rooted in observations McCagg makes about people and nature.
Each line and paint mark is expressive of a moment, a metaphor for something felt or noticed.
McCagg's work is informed and influenced by formal elements such as line and space, which provide an underlying aesthetic vocabulary for her compositions.
