> DESCRIPTION

In his exhibition Tethered, Michael McConnell metaphorically explores the innocence and vulnerability associated with childhood.  “Making art is how I navigate the world and make sense of my literally forgotten childhood writes McConnell.  By observing my anxieties and awkwardness, I create visual narratives that examine loneliness, responsibility, and choice”    These stories reside in a space between memory and nostalgia and focus on the tension that occurs as youth passes into maturity.

The drawings and paintings blur the line between observation and imagination.  The sculptures, composed of discarded stuffed animals sewn over taxidermy forms observe how childhood and adulthood encircle one another.

The Braunstein/Quay Gallery introduced McConnell in 200l through the San Francisco Art Dealers Association (SFADA) Introductions Program.   He has exhibited throughout the U.S. as well as in many group shows in California Museums.
