Heather McGill: Night Moves

September 27, 2013 - December 7, 2013

Heather McGill draws upon the history of art, her artistic practice, and formal considerations to infuse content into her work. A sculptor, painter, and installation artist, McGill seeks to understand form, surface, light and color by fabricating pristine objects that appear to be mass-produced. She uses lacquer-based automotive paints, hand-detailed lines, and pristinely polished finishes to reference muscle car culture and custom motorcycle gas tanks to ask questions about the role of mechanical reproduction, time, emotion and the value of a human's touch.
