I am less interested this sort of poetry but am more drawn to the luminescence that pushes from within his paintings.
McGraw's unique sense of light can be attributed to his use of watercolor. He works often in mixed media and collage as well.
When admiring the circus themes and child realms, I cannot help but think of the compositions of John Grillo or Marc Chagall.
The discovery of another artist goes again to my girlfriend Meaghan. THANKS MEAGHAN!
The spacial occupation in McgGraw's vertical pieces is certainly addressed well. Another artist who comes to mind when painting exaggerated verticals is R.B. Kitaj. The animal-human hybrids identified with their props and youthful celebration remind me of Joan Brown's late paintings.
