Abattoir Gallery


Abattoir will feature new work by Shawn Powell and Caitlin MacBride who each explore objecthood in their paintings. Both mine figuration along singular paths towards raising the familiar into the philosophical, trading in objects borrowed from different realms—MacBride studies tools from historical craft and museum archives while Powell paints life preservers depicted with items one might discover in the sand. American imagery is central to both artists, who each configure carefully wrought objects into unusual environments, suggesting a conscious nod to Surrealism and still-life traditions.
