Following a recent visit to the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia McGorry again looks to art history and a lineage of painting to inform his very contemporary style of painting. Recreating the feel of the Barnes Foundation through charcoal rendering directly on the wall surrounding the repositioned historical compositions. With swirling mixes of translucent and opaque layers, dappled light and bold patterns the artist merges a multitude of techniques into his own unique style of painting.
