Erin MacKeen 
MONUMENTS + MYSTERIES

"Monuments are reminders. They stand as markers of a moment in time and remind us of what mattered. They don’t need to be statues, or buildings, or plaques. They can be significant questions, or difficult choices, or a body of work that can’t help but reflect the preoccupations of now. My artistic approach may be to memorialize, but it is equally a surrender to all that is unknown. An evocation of the mysterious unfolding of things." Erin MacKeen 2017


2  Erin MacKeen in her studio, 2017.


Erin MacKeen explores a minimalist approach to new paintings and works on paper with a focus on the constellation of abstracted form, colour, layer, and light. She continues to play with a lexicon of familiar shapes and geometric forms. The resulting pieces foreground the relationship between these components and decisions; the ways they are complete in their solitude, but magnificent when they become a gathering.
