Paint(in)g: Ally McGinn
23 July @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 12:00pm, repeating until 28 July 2019
Ally McGinn is a conceptually representational painter and installation artist working within a narrative that questions perceptions of art and the conditions of painting. Combining elements of traditional painting and sculpture with found objects and interventions to question our perceptions of the things we are looking at and the ways we are looking at them. Bringing the audience into conversation with the functional object in painting, through a formal reconsideration of material and meaning. Re-signifying value through the re-presentation of artefact. Challenging the subject:object dynamic by questioning our perceptions of the objects we overlook and the value we assign to them. Extending their potentiality, expanding their function and questioning our perception. Her practice represents the process of making and re-presents that process to the viewer.
Ally McGinn graduated with an MA from Bath Spa University in 2018 and has been an artist in residence at Bath Artists’ Studios from October that year.
