Head & Mayhew

Saturday, October 1st - Wednesday, October 26th

October 1-26, 2022
Opening Reception; Saturday, October 1, 2022
These two brilliant artists come together in a unique exhibition to celebrate their life work. Albeit from different provinces and unknown to one another, they are tied with a similar aspiration; to make art for art’s sake. Both Head and Mayhew create works that are about the visual language of art, not the verbal. Be it painting or sculpture, the idea was to appreciate the art outside of an artist statement or explanation; to appreciate the lines, colour, and form intuitively. To immerse yourself in these works of art is like exploring the unknown and to be lost (or found) in the visual world for which they each created. Their aspiration and energy are apparent. The organic forms that they each draw upon is a link to humanity and an exploration of the unknown.
As Mayhew said, “The more sculpture I make, the more wordless I have become. You don’t think in verbal terms. I don’t even think about my work anymore, I just make it.”
(As quoted by Frank Nowosad, “Vertical inspiration”, Monday Magazine, December 1978.)
