McVicker at 90: A Retrospective

 

I feel I am a reporter and interpreter. My paintings are autobiographical in the sense that they are the result of experiences and travels. I paint what I think is important or beautiful. I am moved by the idiosyncrasies of people and the beauty and fragility of nature. And I have always been intrigued by the magic of paint and design.
