Kylie McGinnis Featured as Weekly COCA Profile

Published July 12, 2017

FSU Art BFA ’17 Kylie McGinnis is featured this week in the Council on Culture & Arts’ newsletter.

From the article:

While she’s always painted and drawn, McGinnis expanded her horizons by including sculptural and installation elements into her work, though cedes that she much prefers expressing her ideas on two-dimensional surfaces. Regardless of the end product, she says she doesn’t hold precious any one finished work, past or present. “I learn a little bit from everything that I do but I’m not attached to it,” says McGinnis. “I’m so ready to throw it out when I’m done with it, because, for me, it’s more about developing an idea in a visual language than keeping something.”

In terms of current influences, she cites films like “Ugetsu” and the television show “Sailor Moon” for their hand drawn meticulousness, as well as Björk’s music which reveals a layered approach to listening. Japanese filmmaker Satoshi Kon and his movies have opened McGinnis to accessing duality in her own work as he creates beautifully animated stories with darker, serious undertones.
