Erin McSavaney, "Oriole Park," 2013, acrylic on canvas,48" x 30".
Erin McSavaney’s exhibition feature a series of paintings and audio works that show familiar but rarely remarked landscapes, carved out by the privately-owned automobile across cities. These are places where the cold concrete geometry of highway corridors and thoroughfares intersect with the unrestrained organic forms of nature.
In McSavaney’s paintings, the division between the varying shades of grey hard-edge walls and asphalt roads is frequently ruptured by the encroachment of overhanging green trees and the eccentric dark shadows that they cast.
In each of his audio compositions, McSavaney has created pieces that at once, with eyes closed, create aural landscapes on their own while also, with eyes open, provide a soundtrack to the collection of paintings.
The opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Saturday, November 8, from 2-5pm.
