I lived my life

Melissa McGill
Las Vegas, NV

About the Artist

My work is my attempt to communicate the way I see the world, through the subtle shift of colour and form created by changing light or social issues which touch my heart. Both filter through brush, into composition in ways I’m sometimes unaware of until a piece is finished.

I build up my paintings in a very organic way. Using familiar visual signs, I move between different styles, combining abstraction with figuration, to create a stream of consciousness narrative, hinting at the layers under the surface of our decisions and actions.
