Blue McRight is an inter-disciplinary artist influenced by nature, personal experience, and politics. At its core, her multi-media work focuses on water – and its lack – as an environmental issue; however her practice has expanded to address related ideas such as the body, circulatory systems, and marine science. McRight’s work is both elusive and interactive, inviting viewer engagement and contemplation.
McRight studied art at Rhode Island School of Design. Her public artworks are in the collections of the cities of Culver City, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, San Buenaventura, and San Diego, California as well as in the collections of Sun America, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe; Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington; Port of Portland, Oregon; Chemical Bank, New York; and Mountain Bell, Denver. She lives and works in Venice, California.
