An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Carol E McMahon.

“Sculptures, paintings, and assemblages explore home and family. Domestic objects are de-familiarized and accorded new relationships and narratives. A dollhouse inverted – books bound in paint  unreadable – stuffed animals dissected and re-purposed.”
