Monkey Business: Marlene McCarty


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.
