Xanda McCagg Art

American, b. 1959

Xanda McCagg is an American abstract artist who lives and works in the Chelsea neighborhood in New York City. A classically trained painter, she has evolved into a style that abandons figuration in search of evoking the human essence. McCagg creates her abstract compositions using a mixture of oil, graphite and collage. Although she began her practice as a figurative painter, she has abandoned the figure in search of more intimate portrayals of the human essence. Rather than planning precisely where her composition will lead her, McCagg intuits throughout her process the minimum amount needed to manifest the essence of what she calls “the fine line between perception and imagination of these relationships.”
