But McFetridge is widely known for his silk screen illustrations. His background in graphics is very evident in his work. These figure drawings are simplified into geometric shapes, they become abstract. The playful interweaving of visual between reality and our perceptions often overlooked by our consciousness is captured as two-dimensional subjects.

“The idea is to make image-based work that lies between image and language. So that your visual cortex ‘reads’ these more as language, rather than seeing them as spacial or physical things. A way to induce a misfiring of your mind to create a connection, and manipulate the viewer in a way that creates a sort of resonance."
