Duncan MacDonald & Arnie McBay
The conceptual focus of our exhibition is based on a simple enculturation and naturalization process:
A piece of broken glass washes upon a shoreline - originally (largely) sand, re-purposed as a utilitarian object, discarded; time, erosion and repetitive sandblasting return it to its natural form.
Parallax aims to explore this simple but complex self-reflexive set of material and active processes; form evolves over time; time is in itself materiality. Glass is the conceptual glue that holds this two-person show together. A translucent, almost invisible substance, glass is simultaneously something and nothing. Perspective, perception, phenomenology, and poetics collide in what we imagine to be a collection of artworks prompting viewers to re-consider the function and magic of the senses.
