Tom McKinley’s new body of work binds evocative architectural paintings with peering commentary on civic engagement, surveillance, and cultural archetypes. McKinley’s hyper realistic paintings explore the relationships between objects, architecture, and the natural world. Through his imagined settings, McKinley studies the link between light and color and how interior spaces interact with landscape. The artist often begins his work with an architectural design. In Emmitt House, McKinley highlights a modern home with a Joan Mitchell painting prominently displayed inside. The hues of the atmospheric setting, from the skyline to the stylish furniture, compliment the house and the artwork gracing its walls. The artist’s new paintings explore a similar subject matter, yet prompt conversations about contemporary life. He politicizes his architectural paintings with themes related to infringement on private life in the twenty-first century. Open Mon-Fri 10am–5pm
