Opening Reception 23 April 1985 8pm

East Gallery:


This exhibition by Toronto artist John McCartney will feature a series of large, robotic sculptures incorporating carved wood, industrial debris, found objects, production line pieces and welded, cast and painted metal. In these works, McCartney combines an inventive, toy-like playfulness with theatrical stage-like settings to create idealized images of urban life.

John McCartney was born in 1958. He has recently completed a BFA at York University, Toronto. From 1982 through 1984 he participated in group exhibitions at the IDA gallery, York University, Toronto. This exhibition at Mercer Union will constitute the artist’s first solo show.
