Erin McSavaney focus’ on spaces of everyday life and demonstrates how under close examination our perception of reality can be changed. Inspired by the practices of the 1960s Photorealist painters, McSavaney’s paintings are drawn from observations of his subjective urban landscape. McSavaney begins by walking or biking through urban spaces and carefully documents various interactions between nature and architecture. He then renders hyper-realistic spaces in acrylic paint on canvas. From afar, these paintings appear as a photograph or film still; but upon close inspection subtle details bring attention to the physical object of painting itself.
