Story behind McGee’s new works: This recent oil spill has affected my painting and is revealed in the colors and images of my new show. Water is a central part of our very existence. It not only is crucial for us to stay alive it enriches our aesthetic experiences. Looking out over the ocean or sitting next to a babbling brook restores a sense of inner beauty and contentment with the world. I hope that my new works will make others ponder this incredible resource and realize that we must act to protect all our precious water resources. We must guarantee it will always be a part of our existence for many future generations; not just for drinking, but also for our aesthetic existence. I want to always know that we will be able to look out at the ocean or sit next to a babbling brook and feel at one with the world.
