> DESCRIPTION

McGill learned to paint as an apprentice in a collision shop in Detroit; these skills have evolved into a series of sculpture that applies the media of industry to the mantras of modernity. This particular series of work derives its shape from the schemata of a toy model of an American space station with a 1:72 scale ratio. Each sculptural element in Oblique Angle represents a different view of the model as the object rotates in space. Interference paints, which create color-shifting illusions triggered by movement and light, are activated by the “oblique angle” of viewer to object, suggesting a shifting of our perceptual reality.
