There is something strange and fantastical in Gary McCauley’s work. His pastels tell a story, or often several stories, with symbolic, and at times bizarre, imagery. His work reflects a child’s fascination with the world around him, filtered through the eyes and memories of an adult.

His recent work is a study of the pieces and parts that make up the whole: little strips and shreds from his own memories layered and placed together in a collage of shapes, color, and textures to create a new story with old characters.
