McMahon

Scott McMahon grew up in Connecticut and now resides in Columbia, Missouri where he is an Associate Professor of Art at Columbia College. He received his MFA from Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston and his BFA from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. His work has been featured in numerous galleries, museums, and publications worldwide. A returning artist on the Sager Braudis Gallery roster, McMahon brings a new series that explores the complexity of how moments in time can be retrieved, reimagined, and remixed. During a recent, month-long residency in upstate New York, McMahon explored spaces and structures in an area that became the birthplace of Spiritualism in the United States starting in the late 1840’s. Using a portable camera obscura, various pinhole cameras, scans of detritus, and layers of wax, McMahon creates an amalgam of imagery and texture. Such aesthetic etherealities point to familiar moments and possible narratives, while harkening back to a mystifying and ambiguous past.
