I got a tip from Deanne Cheuk that Massachusetts-based artist Dan McCarthy was creating some pretty hot prints and illustrations, and indeed he is. His work stimulates and then lulls my every sense to the point where if I look at them long enough and then close my eyes, just for one short minute, I feel transported to a place where stars are stars and clean air is something that fills you inside and outside but is not bottled in magic water. Only I then I wake up again in Brooklyn, slightly disorientated, to the sound of a raging car alarm.
