About McCagg’s work, Jaquelyn Tuerk, Professor of Art History at Kean University in New Jersey, said:
“McCagg's ephemeral subject matter is space itself in relation to form. The viewer is left with a feeling of capturing a glimpse of something essential, but only for a moment as the line evolves from one mark to the next. McCagg's images articulate peace, in a lyrical, soft, and complex undulation of unexpected interactions…the space opens so as to give the sensation to the viewer of walking into an alternative world of palimpsest forms, where imagination challenges perception.”
This piece began as part of the Rome series in 2012 that McCagg continued working into it over the course of three years.
In terms of process, she sometimes looks across the studio at a painting done long ago and has an urge to work in to it again.
Capturing the experience over time, this painting brings a certain depth. It was inspired by thoughts about the contrast between being and not being.
