Erin McSavaney: Some Intersections
November 8 – December 31, 2014
Some Intersections features a series of paintings and audio works that show familiar but rarely remarked upon landscapes, carved out by privately-owned cars across cities. These are landscapes 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.
