It is within the stillness of photographs and static images that McCabe seeks to draw out the underlying themes of relationships, co-existence and isolation in her practice. Utilizing personal and found family vacation photographs as a springboard into the exploration and understanding of the notions surrounding family, nostalgia and vulnerability, McCabe focuses on how figures inhabit and interact with the spaces around them. Searching to capture the moments, gestures, and interactions which trigger a sense of familiar experience in her audience, McCabe’s expressive brushwork acts as an active element in exploring the subject in question, guiding us through a constant shift in interpretation as we discover and unfold the subtleties in the rendering of her subjects and their environments.
McCabe is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design. Out of Doors is her first solo exhibition with LE Gallery.
