Dominic McGill’s Swarm of Information Drawings

Dominic McGill’s dense works on paper mix the jarring combination of finely detailed pencil drawings and amorphous photographic collages.¬† Both image and text are piled sky high in McGill’s massive drawings, some measuring at over eight feet high and covering a broad spectrum of topics torn from news headlines from greedy executives to the the violence and bigotry of war. With a never-ending flood information coming at you from every direction, McGill tries to make sense of the constant chaos and despair¬† and perhaps find some answers to the worlds many painful questions.
