about the artist
Carrie McGee’s mixed media constructions explore variation with repeated forms. Utilizing transparent plastics as a ground, she experiments with natural and chemical processes, such as rust and oxidation, to create luminous works that emanate a meditative pulse. An outgrowth from her original work as an abstract painter, McGee’s work is both architectural and yet ephemeral.
She has lived in many parts of the United States, having migrated from Cincinnati to Los Angeles, New York, and finally, Nashville. Her work has been the subject of one-woman shows in Nashville, Boston, Santa Monica, Atlanta, Washington D.C., and New York, and can be found in numerous public and private collections, including the Tennessee State Museum and the Christoph Merian Foundation in Basel, Switzerland.
