Gordon Voisey
From December 1st 1981 to December 19th 1981
Exposition solo

This exhibition of two wall installations and paintings presents diverse imagery defined as schematic symbols. Shaped pieces surfaced with veneers of Plexiglas use words and images to define needs the austere symbol denies. In the second installation imagery such as stallions, diamonds and fish are projected three-dimensionally from the wall. These symbols are veneers embodying the statement, which addresses aspects of the façade denying and sublimating a desire.
