Storytellers: Geoff McFetridge

"I used drawing to tell myself stories, and to create memories. it was like having a machine in your hand that could make toys."

Work from Geoff McFetridge's last show Meditallucination. 

Meditations, in that they are a bit like listening to the world around you, using the noise to find an inner silence and peace that connects you to a deeper state of consciousness. Hallucinations, in that they are made of the raw material of our visual cortex, beyond being found images they are nearly hard-wired into our minds. There are portions of our brain (visual cortex) that view patterns, read language, and make connections to discern depth. Skills that are essential to being a human. I feel this work is about crossing those wires.
