S H I F T is the newest body of work from the larger Generation series, McKenna’s ongoing exploration of intricate photographic reliefs made from textiles and women’s clothing from the last 200 years and across global cultures. Fraying fibers and unraveling embroidery imprint their flaws onto the photographic paper in crystalline detail.  In these recent works McKenna loosens the boundaries, allowing for more personal expression. Photographic toners (liquid copper, sepia and selenium) create warm earth tones while hand drawn lines and streaks of light animate the subjects. These threadbare fabrics act as surrogates for the very bodies that made and wore them.
