This painting was inspired by mid-century Hollywood. It is how I imagine myself back then as a producer checking out the new talent rolling into town in my private home office with nothing in it except a chair and fireplace. Since it is an empty room, I would want to invoke that uncomfortable sensation in the people I was looking at to make them feel like they are on display. I like uncomfortable moments to see how people react.

Getting to Know McBiff

Mcbiff is a pseudonym, obviously. He was given the name at 18 when a friend noticed an Irish-tinted resemblance to Biff from Back to the Future. The name never stuck, but he always thought it was funny. Years later, he painted an enamel piece on glass in the style of Ed Roth. It was the only piece he ever painted in that style so he used a pseudonym as the signature, and remembered the name his friend had given name. He liked the way it looked so much that he started signing everything as Mcbiff. McBiff is heavily influenced by mid 20th Century American minimalism and popular culture, which can be recognized as nostalgic and modern at the same time.
