This untitled painting is among the earliest of the artist’s recent series of driving landscapes. Loosely based on collaged montages of multiple photographic images, they examine the way in which we experience the contemporary landscape. The painting’s canvas surface becomes a car’s windscreen, the view through which is distorted and warped by rain in the form of motttled, stained, sprayed, and scraped oil paint. This particular painting, which portrays a suburban car park, is the only one of the works to incorporate even a peripheral depiction of human figures. As such it serves to underline their irrelevance to McGrath’s practice, in which the viewer himself becomes the figure, occupying the vantage point of a car.
