A native of MA, from the Berkshires’ valleys to windy streets of Boston, and graduate of Massachusetts College of Art, Kerri McGill has taught art skills and lectured on the power of art on the brain and vision. She organized the award winning Floating Gallery and curated 2016’s On the Periphery exhibit. She has participated in Copenhagen's Neuroaesthtic conference and the LPEP art residency in Buenos Aires. For fun she participated in Burning Man and the Coney Island Mermaid Parade. As scenic artist for film and television McGill is familiar with processes ranging from faux painting to mixing concrete and foam carving. She is in every dimension an artist.
My job as an artist combines research with storytelling. I create open-ended narratives that reconstruct the daily visual experience, and ask for further interpretation. The imagery is both intentional and ambiguous. I start the story and the viewer completes it.
Working in film industry as scenic artist- my job is to make realities from falsities- visual truths the eye will believe as true.
