Vancouver-based artist Erin McSavaney focuses on architecture, specifically the often overlooked abandoned warehouses, factories, loading docks, and alleys within urban environments. His work references photography in their format, but also relate to hard-edge abstraction and formalism with his use of straight lines, bold compositions, and intersecting plants. In his artist statement, McSavaney states, “Architecture is a mirror to humanity. More specifically, over time, buildings move from reflecting their environment and an architectural ‘vision,’ to revealing their inhabitants and activities.”
Since graduating from Capilano University in 1998, McSavaney has exhibited across Canada as well as Seattle and Portland. He has been represented by Equinox Gallery since 2009. Erin McSavaney lives and works in Vancouver, BC.
