Oil on canvas

In McCarthy’s List, Dexter Dalwood paints the conservative underbelly of America. Inventing the den of an evangelistic witch-hunter, Dexter Dalwood opts for typical upper-middle-class suburbia, replete with fieldstone bookshelf, Lay-Z-Boy furniture, and catalogue-order globe to monitor the ever-enclosing axis of evil. A portable typewriter sits expectant by his precious amassing volume, being both warmed and threatened by the devil-red fire of communism.
