Abstract (English)

"Intimacies will present discrete but conceptually connected works in print form by three artists to be installed throughout the MSS gallery. Each of these works was produced as a multiple and represents a range of printmaking techniques and media, from digital to silkscreen to offset press and photocopy. These works are informed by the idea of intimacy, in particular male intimacy and how it is manifested in contemporary experience. The joint presentation of work by these three men is meant to offer both conceptual and experimental strategies from diverse perspectives. Lessard’s postcards speak to the emotional depth arising from personal relationships (sometimes fleeting, sometimes profoundly complex and laden) between men. McFadden’s screen prints speak to memory, identity and social bonds. Verburg's ‘stack’ is concerned with the subtle links and connections between people, experience, emotion and personal reality. With the work in this exhibition, Verburg moves towards exploring these ideas in minimal and non-representational ways, representing people and ideas through shape, colour and form" -- Publisher's web site.
