McCarthy puts a whole new collection together for the Premier Showing of his large format collage paintings. Inspired by his love of vintage images, magazines, books and old comics.

About

I've always collected vintage images. Old comics, magazines, posters and books, not in a 'stick 'em in a big bag in the loft' kind of way, but stored in large white boxes and placed in large white cupboards. Stanley Kubrick did the same thing (though his was a warehouse)  This lead to an idea of making paper collages of the ripped and torn images.Which in turn lead to another idea of making paintings of the paper collages. They were the same size. Sometimes you couldn't tell which were the paper collages and which were the paintings. This exhibition brings them together for the first time; YOU IZ A MACHINE. The title of the show came from a conversation I overheard about getting things done.

All artists are machines. JM
