Biography

 Senalka McDonald is drawn to spaces within the home. Rather than being a physical place, McDonald presents an internal home-space within the mind; a space where identity, voice and the impact of performative gesture create exposure, enforcing a circular gaze. McDonald is a recent recipient of the Murphy Cadogan Fellowship and has participated in the ROOTED and the Austin Project residencies. Recent selected exhibitions include Home After Dark (San Francisco, CA), Queer State(s) (Austin, TX) and Hello (San Francisco, California). McDonald is currently an MFA candidate at California College of the Arts, where she received full Graduate Merit and Diversity scholarships. She received Bachelor’s degrees in Fine Art and Cultural Geography from the University of Texas at Austin (2006). She currently resides in San Francisco, California.                                                 www.senalka.com
