On the side of the garage hang two paintings McFee did with his friend Jesse, which were created over the span of one day for a restaurant commission that eventually fell through. “It made me interested in collaboration in general,” he says. “I think that’s what I need sometimes, to break out of my own stuff and work with other people. We started with two large boards, applied painter’s tape, then both just attacked them with color at the same time.”
