Michael McCarthy's works, seemingly serene and peaceful, engender feelings of anxiety. The near absence of human references leads one to wonder where the humans have gone. Might these series of photographs be traces of the beautiful and beguiling calm after the storm and violence, pictures of a world left behind, no longer occupied by humans?
This work was exhibited at BronxArtSpace as part of the exhibition Future Perfect on view January - February 2018.
