Datura in Spring
April 22nd - May 21st, 2023
Megan Ellen MacDonald (b. 1990) was born in Belleville, Ontario and graduated from OCAD University in 2013 with a BFA in Drawing and Painting. MacDonald’s paintings challenge the pre-established aesthetic hierarchy by creating a visual language out of things considered both diminutive and feminine. Her still-life arrangements – first created using 3D software and “documented” as paintings – depict intimate and destructive relationships between objects as an exploration of what it means to embrace both femininity and power. MacDonald has exhibited paintings in Canada, Europe, and the United States. MacDonald currently lives in Toronto, Ontario.
