Traditionally much of McAttee's work has been described as super optimistic, recently however there has been a shift in focus. This is best indicated in the titles of some of the new paintings, such as- Super Sonic Atomic Plasma Boom 2010 or Smashing Atoms 2011 the shift seems to refer to splitting atoms or collapsing stars and thus points towards something explosive and violent as opposed to bubbles and weightlessness.
It is not just titles that indicate a change in mood and intention. Some of the colours suggest not all is as it should be- Glowing red and orange clusters have now mutated into fluorescent chemical greens and yellows, seemingly as a result of a radio active fallout. Or the weird blue and pink webbing effect depicted in Super Sonic Atomic Plasma Boom suggest something viral perhaps. Glitter and doom share the same space.
McAttee considers his very latest paintings as containing a multi-verse of possibilities. They are in many respects landscapes or space-scapes but not in the tradition of trees, lakes and farm houses. The paintings are packed full of elements- liquids, gases, fire and solid multi coloured spheres are all present and jostle for position just as they would do in the creation of a universe. the paintings for me are an imaginative glimpse into another world, from the super big to life inside an atom, the point is, it's up to you. McAttee says "For me a painting is an active site of pure potential for both painter and viewer alike, where anything is possible".
