Roy McMakin


This month at James Harris Gallery in Seattle, artist Roy McMakin is exhibiting new photographs titled “Actual”. This is an appropriate title considering that each object in the exhibition has been photographed, sometimes over 100 times, and then digitally collaged together to offer a true to life scale and perspective. This show is an extension of a body of work that deals with the domestic object. McMakin is an accomplished designer and conceptual artist who often employs a sense of humor in his work. The artist received his MFA from the University of California at San Diego, and has exhibited with the Matthew Marks Gallery, NYC, and with Mark Selwyn Fine Art in L.A. The artist is also currently on view in a new series title “Apex” with the Portland Art Museum.
