Upcoming Exhibition – Max Dean: I’m Late, I’m Late


The gallery is pleased to present “I’m Late, I’m Late”, our first solo exhibition by multidisciplinary Canadian artist Max Dean.

MAX DEAN

I’m Late, I’m Late

Exhibition Dates:
March 5 – March 26, 2016

Reception for the Artist:
Saturday, March 5, 2-5pm

 

Establishing a metaphor between the gallery and his studio, Max Dean plots the journey of his ideas from inception to realization.  The gallery is open and full of potential; a space where anything might happen. His studio and mind are places of possibilities and playfulness. Both are places in between and whose primary purpose is to provide connections. Come and join Dean’s journey to the edge of his jungle, ride along perilous mountain roads, walk to the edge of cliffs, and cross vast bodies of water teaming with ravenous creatures. This series of photographs - part puzzle, part game – allows the viewer to participate in the artist’s creative process.
