brass tack tact

Evan Locke

Opening reception: Friday, Nov. 6th, 2009, 7 to 10 p.m.

Exhibition runs through to Sunday, November 29th.

Evan Locke’s brass tack tact presents works that are an aestheticization of 20th-century modernist painting; a coy expression of materiality and plasticity. A pseudo-construct­ivist slant reveals the failings and or successes of universal­izability in abstract painting. The self-referential paintings work to disclose only their own construction and material, but tease the viewer with a facade of colour and paint.
