Artist's Statement

Meghan’s work combines traditionally gendered forms of discarded industrial tools and machines with craft, textile pattern, and decorative art using paint, collage, marker, and print. Netting, stripes, and dots reference networks of digital circuitry that transmit a stream of shapes and colors. Fragmented components such as gaskets, gear teeth, and geometric lace combine to suggest an invented, hybrid form that assimilates mechanical and non-mechanical qualities, both organic and decorative. Shallow space and layered opaque shapes reflect encrypted digital spaces that hinder access, such as the flat, impenetrable screen of a computer, capable of projecting the illusion of depth. Visual dissonance and humor are created in the confusions of solid form and negative space; anxious objects and bright Pop colors. The accumulation of these visual elements creates unconventional constructions, a language of fluidity that interrupts innate power structures of the original form.
