Modern individuals have become incredibly efficient at interpreting and reading images. In McCabe’s latest work of photographs, literally drawn on with a pencil, he challenges and teases the viewer with fragments of a representational image that delay full comprehension of the picture indefinitely. Unlike paintings that dissipate to tonal variations under close inspection the photo-drawings not only form new dialogues to untangle the narrative of the photograph, they also let you in into a world that eludes the weight of truth that is attached to photography.
