Stephanie McMahon discusses her show, Close to Me, with a Q & A session to follow.

Close to Me refers to the gestural nature and immediacy of the paintings, but also to the environment around the artist’s home in rural Alfred, New York.  McMahon explores an abstract language informed by the natural forms and structures that populate the landscape and the history and experiences that shaped that particular place –from the surrounding fields and undulating hills and ravines to the hidden treasures left behind by the original landowner who made sculptures and land art.  Weaving in and out of referential forms and colors, McMahon allows space for new ideas to emerge in the painting process.  Geometric and organic forms merge as gesture and color create tension, revealing both transitory and measured time.  The finished pieces not only reference the event of painting, they are also active spaces for visual exploration.
