“McGorry’s panels have a visionary quality that takes the strangeness of the Pre-Raphaelites and runs with it, relocating each scene to a old alternative preceptal and narrative realm. Theres a commentary on the operation of memory in them to, a set of ideas about the ways in which we jettison most of any given scene in order to emphasise selected parts, burnishing them until they assume an almost viisible significance.” Michael Wilson Art New Zealand winter 2018
