We watch as fog moves over a mountain, aspens quake in the wind, the sun flickers on a forest. In Megan McLarney’s art, these minimal moments are examined with exacting scrutiny. McLarney is an artist obsessed with recording. For the past six years, she has developed a method of documenting both the natural and man-made landscape. Her technique involves using a stationary video camera to shoot overlapping exposures at a specific location. The footage is then combined in post-production to construct a panoramic view with more detail than one could possibly capture with a single shot. This perspective allows us to see what may have previously been overlooked. What was once incidental now becomes significant.

Megan McLarney was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri and has been living and working in New York City since 1997. In April 2002, she had her first solo exhibition at the Oni Gallery in Boston and in June 2002, she had her first solo exhibition, in New York City , at the Florence Lynch Gallery. She has also participated in Schools of Thought at the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She holds a BFA in Film, Animation, & Video from the Rhode Island School of Design.
