McKinney and Crandall both create works with lush, intricate surfaces. Whether they do so through thick brushstrokes and texture, or through delicate layering of color and paper, their mark-making is truly beautiful.

Metaphysical Musings isn’t just concerned with what’s on the surface, however. These works also focus on what’s just below or above the surface of what we look at. Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world that encompasses it, these paintings make reference to this
in various ways.
