I’ve featured many painters here before, but the detached coolness of McKenzie’s work reminds me especially of the photorealism of Brendan Nieland.

  1. I’m glad you like them, Ben. I especially appreciate when the geometry becomes almost abstract, but then you’re reminded that you’re actually looking at a realistic rendering of geometric parts.

  2. I like them and agree with VL that I think I like the ones most that lean to abstract. For instance “Lift” may be my least favorite just beacuse it is the most realistic . . in my opinion.
