Art Portfolio: Erin Mackeen

Abstract painting on raw canvas with blue, pink and yellow strips"Miami Day" Acrylic on raw canvas. By Erin Mackeen.


Today we are featuring an artist from Toronto by the name of Erin Mackeen. Erin works with a focus on colour and minimal geometric areas of colour that are woven with stripes of all shades. I really enjoy Erin's colour combinations, they do good things to my brain. I'm inspired by her ability to really go with the flow of paint on the raw canvas.  I love the combination of opaque areas of colour in combination with the more translucent areas that have a soft, wash-like effect.
