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.”
McCagg listens to music when she is working – all varieties.
In this work, she was thinking about composition in a different way – the power of hearing a passage or when an individual note strikes the air.
Painting is metaphor; like a symphony. She does think a lot about the titles and look through the dictionary because she is interested in language and meaning of words. When titling, it has a relationship to what she is trying to express.
