In her abstract paintings, Kirsten Macy uses evocative hues and minimalist forms to convey her experiences and observations. Her spare compositions belie an edgy streak, which led her to co-found the Oh6 Art Collective (founded 2004), a group of ironically minded artists whose motto was “MAKE IT. SHOW IT. GET IT.” A keen observer, she filters urban and natural landscapes, light, images, and her changing mindset and emotions into her works. Within an overtly abstract idiom, Macy’s paintings range from small- to large-scale, entirely abstract to semi-representational, and brightly colored to muted. In her most recent body of work, which she describes as “abstracted landscapes,” she explores her slow recovery after being hit by a car. Variations on a theme, each painting centers upon an amorphous, explosive form set against bands of soft white, gray, and purple.
