    Using the simplest of means and, with his typically deceptive abilities to poignantly capture emotion, McKenna's Untitled (1998) is a moving image
    of suburban loneliness. As in much of his work architecture and the landscape is stripped back to the archetypal emphasizing its universal qualities. The details such as the ladder reaching up in to the tree to the right of the house only heighten the tension seeming somehow vaguely sinister. The lights are on but is anyone home?
