As a continuation of investigations of place and sentimentality via an abstract and minimal vocabulary, Leave a Tender Moment Alone is a collection of works on paper and an installation based on observations of the ephemeral, rhythmic instances of waves crashing on the beach. The undulating lines are abstractions of the clustered shapes a wave takes after it crashes. The compositions suggest, on an altered scale, the frothy sensuality of the moment.
McCambly continues her subtle and expansive exploration of works on paper at IGLOO this month. McCambly has shown her large-scale drawings and paintings and sculptures utilizing intricately cut and suspended paper in numerous national venues including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, The Dallas Contemporary, The Garage Gallery in San Diego, CA and was included in the London Biennale in the U.K.
McCambly earned a B.F.A. and an M.F.A. in Painting and Drawing from the University of North Texas, College of Visual Arts and Design.
