Danielle Mckinney,"Sixth Sense", Artwork

"Sixth Sense," 2021

Night Gallery, Los Angeles, and Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York and Aspen, are thrilled to announce co-representation of Danielle Mckinney. Mckinney’s exhibition Smoke and Mirrors is currently on view at Night Gallery through June 19th, 2021. Marianne Boesky Gallery will present a forthcoming exhibition of new works by the artist, which will be on view June 24th through July 25th, 2021, in Aspen, CO. 

Danielle Mckinney is a New Jersey-based painter known for evocative portraits of imagined figures that stand in as the artist’s self-reflections. Drawing from a background in fine arts photography, Mckinney’s portraits contain rich plays of light and dark values against somber backgrounds of spare yet richly expressive brushstrokes. Emerging from this darkness, Mckinney’s singular images reach the viewer with a stunning clarity, creating iconographic vignettes of human feeling. At once recalling masterpieces across art history as well as the immediacy of social media imagery, Mckinney’s tableaux exist out of time, conjuring moments of passion, reflection, and catharsis.

"Danielle Mckinney's stunning paintings demonstrate an uncommon talent, and I am very excited to see where her vision leads her next. Night Gallery is thrilled to represent Danielle alongside Marianne Boesky Gallery and are delighted to present her Los Angeles debut, Smoke and Mirrors, which opened in May 2021 and is currently on view at the gallery." – Davida Nemeroff, founder of Night Gallery

““We are pleased to announce co-representation of Danielle Mckinney with our colleagues at Night Gallery, Los Angeles. Danielle has a singular vision and ability to capture immense emotional depth in the nuances of her paintings. We are excited to share her new paintings this summer in Aspen." – Marianne Boesky, founder of Marianne Boesky Gallery
