About this Artwork
In this painting, McCagg simplified the composition by playing with layering to create a space that invites the viewer to continue making their own connections and articulations. The experience then goes beyond the painting.
McCagg is drawn to abstraction with its endless freedom. Each person can move from what is presented to other ideas or references within the individuals’ feelings at the moment or deeper within one’s life experience.
