Megan MacDonell

Show Statement: “I paint the abstraction around me. I paint that which is better expressed with a brush than a pen. There is a sensitivity in nature that we should not be separate from… yet somehow we are. This sensitivity is revealed in natural processes such as the transformation of a larva into a butterfly or the passing of an animal after procreation -overwhelmingly beautiful and intensely powerful, yet somehow overlooked.

Color, repetition and the juxtaposition of order versus chaos is what interests me. I approach my paintings with a large format in mind. This allows more freedom and encourages the viewer to see the work in human scale. Oil on canvas and mixed media watercolor on paper are the materials that suite me best.

Show Statement: “I’m showing new landscape, figure and still life paintings all created in the past year.  They fall into two camps; landscapes with lots of cool colors — blue and green and then still life and figure paintings made with lots of warm, rosy, neutral colors. This follows my yearly routine of painting outside when it’s a pleasant temperature and inside when it’s too hot or cold to paint outside.
