The Umbrella Arts Center
Sep. 23, 2023 - Oct. 31, 2021
On view through October 31, Wrack Line features new paintings by Michael MacMahon, created during his two-year residency at The Umbrella Arts Center in Concord. Originally from Ireland, MacMahon now resides in the United States, and these dual perspectives prominently inform the works in Wrack Line. Part of the painting faculty at School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University, he has shown work both nationally and throughout the region. His practice utilizes landscape imagery and color theory to further his interest in the representation of the American landscape with an exploration of home as a place and a state of mind. Awards include the Dana Pond award for painting. In addition to painting he has enjoyed interdisciplinary opportunities that bridge art and other ventures, most recently as curator of The Umbrella’s group exhibition, Dazzleship.
