Select Works by Tom McGrath
Tom McGrath (born 1978) is an artist based in New York City. McGrath’s paintings often imply a moving vantage point and a windshield-like analogy between painting, surface and picture. His imagery evokes romantic road-trip, scenic overlooks, optical blind-spots and landscapes. The work is often presented as the viewpoint of a car passenger, a tourist, a commuter, or a pedestrian.

SS: Another thing about your collection is you never really take into consideration where you might put something. You never say you’re not going to buy it because it doesn’t fit in the house. Like Tom McGrath’s …tons of a barrelin’…. That painting is over seventeen feet long.
JC: I just thought it was so great. It was better than Rosenquist’s F-111 from 1964. I thought I could put on soft stretcher and wind it around one of the rooms of the house! To see if it would work…but I never got around to that. It’s on loan to the OMA and I saw it beautifully hung there in Orlando.
