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 eclectic feel of the Barnes Foundation through charcoal rendering directly on the wall surrounding the repositioned historical compositions.
