In a statement quoted in her press release, McQuillan writes: “I began making cameraless photographs four years ago, but instead of recording the outline of an object, I am capturing the shadows of many-layered drawing:  the lines themselves, as they fall for an instant on the paper…  I don’t believe it’s necessary to sacrifice working by hand to create work that reflects an interest in the way different technologies have changed the way we see the world.  Ideally, while abstract, my work references the cosmic, the mundane, the optical, the actual and the virtual all at the same time.”

This was an artcritical PIC in March 2010.
