Coming Back Is Half The Trip consists of studies for paintings and sculptures shown in his fourth solo exhibition with V1 Gallery / Eighteen, October 27 – November 24, 2018. The book, in conjunction with the exhibition, offers new approaches to cognition. McFetridge ventures on to the ledge of meaning, bringing us with him on a trip that we can sense, but struggle to verbalize. A meditative, empathic state of mind, where we are connected beyond time and words in recognition of our complex existence. Visual art.
