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 painting explores the fine line between figuration and abstraction.
The relationship of forms could be construed as figures in space. The humanness – standing, leaning, getting really close, getting far away is at the core of McCagg's work.
She thinks about perception – noticing relationships and connections of people, the space between the people and the connection of the people.
In the process of articulating compositions with graphite lines and painted forms, the paintings develop an expression of these ideas through abstraction.
