Artist Registry


The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online platform for emerging and under-recognized artists to share images and information about their respective practices. The Registry seeks to create a context for artists who have yet to benefit from wider critical, curatorial or commercial support. To be eligible, artists cannot be affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City.

STATEMENT OF WORK

"...they rivet our attention, with an awareness of vastness and detail that is uncanny. We return to the paintings to look again and again, prompted by the sensation of movement in our consciousness of space."

— Linda Leslie Brown, 2019, essay accompanying Mary Bucci McCoy: Vis-à-vis, Gray Contemporary, Houston, TX

I consider our current human situation and identity in relationship with the mineral, vegetal, and animal through non-objective, intimately-scaled panel paintings offered as poetic spaces of self-reflexive focus. My long-term practices of subtle external and internal attunement — walking the local post-glacial, post-colonial New England landscape through the seasons as well as personal somatic exploration via a variety of modalities — converge to yield an improvisational, materially-resonant painting vocabulary of fluidity, sedimentation, gravity, time, breath, movement and indexical color.
