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.”
Behold is from an ongoing series of paintings based on McCagg's perceptions about the human experience, of being next to something, being alone, or being with someone very close but not touching.
Her observations about life are expressed using paint and graphite to make the composition, the relationships of color, forms, and the space articulated with line and marks.
The painting’s meaning is created by the juxtaposition of the parts. Like in language, the meaning evolves as words are strung together. In the painting, absence and presence together create meaning.
