About: Magee’s painting Profile is a fine example of the artist’s meticulous paintings of mundane objects. The artist brings together two seemingly unrelated objects—a sheep skull from Mosquito Island in Maine and a shipping box from the art supply firm, Daniel Smith Company. The juxtaposition provides the viewer the opportunity to contemplate this odd combination of curious items. The painting will complement the other figurative works in the Lynn Herrick Sharp Gallery for Contemporary Art.
