MARK BROSSEAU & BRIAN EDMONDS: EYES LIKE ENEMIES
ESPS: East Side Project Space / 507 Hagen St. October 6, 2017 - October 31, 2017
Rilke wrote: 'These trees are magnificent, but even more magnificent is the sublime and moving space between them, as though with their growth it too increased. - Gaston Bachelard, Poetics of Space
This exhibition, curated by Jodi Hays, brings together two painters whose work adds to the discourse on abstraction and the visual nature of painting. Sight is not the only way to enter the work, but considerations of space, history and memory give the viewer/thinker a broader experience with the work. Works by Brosseau and Edmonds occupy a place in abstraction that leans on titles, references to discovery and research that can sometimes belie an only-visual read.
