Details:

“Technicolor Familiar: Illustrations by E. K. McDonnell” is an exhibition of recent drawings by local artist Emma Kramer McDonnell. The exhibition features a selection of McDonnell’s intimate, small-scale illustrations inspired by Surrealism, pop culture, and Western Esotericism. The Richard B. Talkin Family Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the McCuan Hall.

Technicolor Familiar encapsulates the current iteration of McDonnell's personal art practice. The name was adopted in 2018 to reflect the evolution taking place in her artwork; "technicolor" for highly saturated palettes, and "familiar" for creatures connected to magic and the occult. Anachronistic in style and symbolism, Technicolor Familiar exists somewhere between surrealism, pop art, medieval altarpieces, and Western esotericism. This new body of work draws inspiration from the (un)natural world, astrology, alchemy, dreams and the subconscious.
