Part of an emerging generation of British artists, Mackfall demonstrates an expanded approach to painting by embracing the scale and surface of the spatial situations in which she works. Recent installations of colourful abstract forms have seen works on paper suspended across an office and gouache applied directly to a studio wall. Including paper, glass, fabric and cane, they hover between domestic intimacy and a broader architectural landscape.
