When you view her works from afar, you see her intricate embroidery, but when you get closer…

There are also sculptures on exhibit and those also have subliminal messages in them.

The self titled exhibit by Barry McGee at Cheim & Read in New York is a must see show!  This exhibit marks the first show in New York in 8 years from the San Francisco street artist turned gallery artist.

Barry McGee’s works are huge in scale with each work containing numerous works within them.  Trippy patterns, McGee’s signature phrases such as “DFW” (short for “Down For Whatever”) or his pseudonym L. Fong are ever present in these works and you’ll find yourself staring at his art for hours and you will still discover things you hadn’t seen before.
