Artist Maureen McQuillan explores aspects of growth and unpredictability, repetition, replication and imperfection in the process and activity of drawing itself. Her work over the last two decades has ranged over many diverse mediums including printer’s ink and resin on paper, cameraless photography and installation. “Currently, I am making drawings that flout the traditional separation between line and color in Western aesthetics and explore the possibilities inherent in my own incredibly flawed system of color investigation.”
McQuillan is based in Brooklyn, and has been exhibiting her work both nationally and internationally, including eight solo shows. Her most recent was in 2015 at McKenzie Fine Art in NY and was entitled “Process Color.” Group exhibitions include: Le VOG Contemporary Arts Center, Fontaine and The College of Art and Design, Grenoble, France; The Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC; The Contemporary Museum, Baltimore, Maryland; The Drawing Center, NY; The Islip Art Museum, NY; The College of New Rochelle, NY; and the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Wisconsin, among many others. McQuillan’s work has been mentioned and reproduced in The New York Times, Newsday, The Boston Globe, TimeOut, The San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco Examiner, ARTnews, Architectural Digest and Art on Paper, and her work is held in private and public collections all over the world. Maureen McQuillan is represented by McKenzie Fine Art in New York.
