In bothformal and informal contexts, bold combinations ofcolour, shape and knowledgably crafted graphicelements sit against and beside one another, alive withenergy and empathy. His pictorial sense touches on theglobal reach of unsanctioned art that takes place withinthe fabric of urban architecture, but equally on Hispanicand Latin-American decorative arts, and functionalgraphics sourced from the post-consumer world.Hundreds of uniquely painted panels and objects canbe fitted together, butted against one another in animmersive, site-responsive hang that results fromMcGee’s openly intuitive working method.”Excerpt from Press Release from here
