Jason McLean in Oakville Galleries "Out of Line" exhibition

June 21 - September 5, 2015

Having long since shed its status as a marginal or elementary practice, the medium of drawing has undergone a dramatic transformation in recent decades. No longer the domain of the merely preparatory, drawing's position in the contemporary art landscape is a vital one, offering countless artists the means to describe their worlds, document their visions and detail the intangible.

Out of Line brings together recent works by more than thirty contemporary artists from across Canada working in drawing's expanded field. Encompassing a broad array of styles and strategies—from representation and figuration to gestural abstraction and conceptual engagement—the works assembled here...

Jason McLean's "Lettuce Legs" exhibition opens at Cinders Hausclub, 700 Lorimer Street, 2nd Floor, Brooklyn, NY on Saturday May 23 from 7-10pm

Jason Mclean is a Canadian artist currently living in Brooklyn. We first met Jason nearly a decade

the Cinders Hausclub all this month!

Looking at the prolific body of Jason...
