You missed a great gallery show in NYC. Marlene McCarty's gigantic pen and ink drawings were a sight to behold. The detail and beauty in each drawing covered entire walls. I was on my way out before I picked up the brochure that told the true story behind each drawing. Dreams, fantasies, and entire other ways of life emerged fully formed but still encompassing that haze of delirium. I never wanted a big house with big walls until I found these big drawings to cover them with.
