Backyards. Franklin Street, Portland. Whole Foods Series

“I continue my 2015 Franklin Street Series with, Backyards off Franklin. The focal point of this painting is the clothes lines in the backyards of the low income housing. The residents here also work to grow food in the Urban Community Garden near the Whole Foods Store. I am moved by the vulnerability of this backyards to the traffic on this Portland, Maine artery. Be it under ware hanging to dry or children playing.”

Erin McGee Ferrell. American Artist

Philadelphia/ Maine Urban Architectural Artist

Erin McGee Ferrell is inspired by architecture merging with landscape. The artist notices the spaces of sky and buildings between suspended electrical lines, seeking to paint the moments of sky that occur between the floors of a parking garage. Drawing is the foundation of her work as an artist. McGee Ferrell’s work may scream abstraction, but underneath adheres to visual accuracy and measurement. Addicted to adrenaline, the artist paints in highly public places where she is forced to paint fast and true. Recent work has focused on the merging of urban and coastal architectural structures in Philadelphia and Maine. McGee Ferrell is a natural entrepreneur who is determined to be an influential and important Contemporary American Artist.

 

Erin McGee Ferrell studied oil painting at Mount Holyoke College, Pennsylvania Academy of Art, University of the Arts Philadelphia, and The University of Louisville, KY. She has studied and created art in Italy and Nigeria. Collectors include TD Ameritrade, AtlantiCare New Jersey, Jones Lang LaSalle Americas, INC.
