The paintings in Fixed Reality focus on spaces of everyday life and reveal how under close examination our perception of reality can be altered. Erin McSavaney draws from observations walking or biking through urban spaces and carefully documents various interactions between the natural world and the architecture from neighbourhoods he grew up in. He then renders hyper-realistic spaces in acrylic paint on canvas and clear open areas are bisected by brightly coloured geometric elements, much like conceptual art historical inspired graffiti. The result is a composition that boldly bridges the divide between photorealism and abstraction. From afar, these paintings appear as a photograph or film still; but upon close inspection subtle details such as a flattened blue sky or shadow rendered out of perspective bring attention to the physical object of painting itself.
