Painting from the democratic, almost childlike vantage point of a car passenger seat, the artist uses cool, neutral tones of beige, grey and brown to create an atmosphere of detached melancholy. Tom McGrath’s driving landscapes are an investigation not so much of the landscape itself, but rather of our movement through it – and the effect that that movement can have on our environment, both perceptually and culturally. The road, a motif central to a great deal of American music, literature and art, is here employed as a psychological map of the passengers inside, as a metaphor of their running to or from something, or indeed of their not knowing where to go.
