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 is one of a group of works on paper made with paint sticks and pencil on paper that has been primed with gesso.
The works on paper, although not specifically made to be the preparatory drawings for a larger painting, do inform her larger bodies of work.
In this work McCagg is making color shapes and articulating different points and ideas with the line.
McCagg's work is informed and influenced by formal elements such as line and space, which provide an underlying aesthetic vocabulary for her compositions.
