Bad Weekend/2015

Caitlin McCann was born in 1989. She is entering her 4 year as a Painting major at Alberta College of Art + Design, and was chosen for the Painting Third Year Award in 2015. Her painting practice concentrates on themes of female self-identity through spectatorship, and the cyclical relationship between social power dynamics, constructed space, and memory. She characteristically employs psychedelic optical tricks or novelty materials to draw unsuspecting viewers into exploded personal narratives about rape culture, abuse survival, anxiety, and tokenism. Her paintings embody and document emotional responses to systemic force. When she isn’t painting, McCann is working in a candy shop, moshing at hardcore shows, or devouring intersectional feminist discourse in her apartment in Calgary, Alberta.
