QUENTIN JAMES MCCAFFREYPROMISES
McCaffrey's worlds are of an arrested time, a stillness emphasizing the activity that is outside its borders. Using single-point perspective, layers of oil paint on panel or canvas, and a focus on light, he renders domestic interior spaces. His motionless interiors seek to call into question the narratives that become ingrained in one's understanding of the world.
“By art alone can we get out of ourselves, find out what another person sees of this universe which is not the same as ours… Thanks to art, instead of seeing one world, we see it multiplied, and we have as many different worlds at our disposition as there are original artists.” (III, 895-96)
