About the Exhibit
Maximum value in a cycle is the extreme periphery of transition and change, the cataclysmic moment just before normalcy returns. For the past several years, MacKinnon has been observing the activity of Solar Cycle 24—studying satellite images of solar flares, as well as reading about any resulting geomagnetic storms that could bring about the appearance of the auroras. Contrasting the raw, fiery power of the sun with the cool calm beauty of the auroras is important to the color story she is creating. MacKinnon builds her paintings out of thin layers of transparent glaze, producing luminous color and a richness of surface that references industrial finishes.
