The Artist

About the artwork

Both in perspective and composition, Tied To The Mast can most certainly bring to mind Robert Rauschenberg’s Bed. But the similarities end there. While Rauschenberg’s composition was born of necessity and lack of materials, MacBride’s focus on this Shaker object is a reflection of her fascination with the Shaker community, its gendered living arrangements, and its requisite vow of celibacy.

About the artist

Caitlin MacBride

American painter Caitlin MacBride finds inspiration in the relics of the American utopia. A classical painter raised on the border of Connecticut and Rhode Island, MacBride graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in 2005 followed by an MFA at Bard's Milton Avery School of the Arts in 2015. After many years in New York, studying museum archives, painting, and teaching, MacBride took a leap. Though her first studio may have been the hallway of her New York apartment, her current studio is located at the Foreland Campus for Contemporary Art in Catskill, New York.
