Feeling the need to decipher truth and a yearning to create, McPhie’s art explores conundrums, dichotomies and avenues for gathering strength, beauty and wisdom. The work conveys the duality of swimming in the deep waters of an eternal story and trudging through the messy realities of the everyday. Her overall concept is about receiving knowledge and inspiration. “It is not through perfection that we reach the divine, it is through our imperfections.”
