Margaret McCan

Margaret McCann landed in Italy on a Fulbright grant to study depictions of saints, and to apply their strange fusion of the neurotic and the sublime to portraiture. She grew up in a family of 10 children in the 1960’s; “between these numbers Murphy’s Law was consistently operational” says McCann. This upbringing led to her interest in multiple viewpoints, complexity, absurdity, and the contradictions of Cubism and Italian Metaphysical Painting.
