The Good People of SUNDAY are pleased to announce new small-scale works by Michael Jones McKean. Exploring states of in-betweeness, the spaces between experience and perception, understanding and meaning, fantasy and reality, success and failure, McKean’s works can be seen as loosely woven three-dimensional narrative collages.
Michael Jones McKean (b. 1976, Truk Island, Micronesia) lives and works in Richmond, Virginia. He received a MFA from Alfred University, Alfred, New York and a BFA from Marywood University in Scranton, PA. A recipient of numerous awards, Michael has been granted fellowships and residencies at The Core Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Central Michigan University as the Stephen L. Barstow Fellow and The Archie Bray Foundation. He was recently awarded the Nancy Graves Foundation Award in 2005 and the Artadia Award in 2006. He’s also received The Jeanne C. Thayer Fellowship in the Arts along with four State Arts Commission grants including an Emerging Artist Fellowship. Recent solo exhibitions include Diverseworks, Houston and Grand Arts, Kansas City, MO. His first New York solo exhibition is scheduled for September at SUNDAY.
