Micah Lexier & Kelly Mark: Head-to-Head
27 August - 9 October 2011
Saint Marys University Art Gallery
Micah Lexier and Kelly Mark both live in Toronto and spent formative years at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD University). These friends often work with similar procedures or materials, but manifesting distinct sensibilities. Counting and text figure frequently in the work of both artists: both make pieces that record and quantify the passage of time. Both have designed tattoos, or worked with their own "signatures" as written by other people. In a spirit at once collaborative and playfully competitive, the artists present pairs of work from their respective practices, illustrating their differences of approach as much as their similarities.
