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.”
Convey is about the human experience, of being next to something, being alone, or being with someone very close but not touching.
This is expressed using the relationships of color, forms and the space articulated with line.
The painting’s meaning is created by the juxtaposition of the parts. Like in language, the meaning of the words evolves as you string the words together. In the painting, absence and presence together create meaning.
