Though they infrequently have defining or recognizable features, Sara MacCulloch’s landscapes depict very specific places: “Mostly, they are the places that I used to dream about all the years that I lived away,” she says. “The places that signify home.” Even so, MacCulloch does not start with an exact idea of a painting’s outcome, but begins working based on her impressions of a place’s look and feel. She characteristically reduces her forms to basic shapes, which she renders in broad sweeps without extensive concern for detail. This defining aesthetic is in part the result of MacCulloch’s painting process, which is to make each painting in one sitting, “to allow for clarity in purpose, but also to give the work a sense of immediacy.”
