“I am interested in the practice of painting that finds its embodiment in a continuous elaboration and modulation of form, without commitment to a fixed result.” – Elizabeth McIntosh
The art of Elizabeth McIntosh reveals itself through multiple visual interpretations and understandings, her bold work shying away from aesthetic resolution. McIntosh operates in an unguarded manner, her subjective process inviting the direct appreciation of the perceptual experience. Reflecting on the painter’s role, she redefines limiting categories such as abstraction and figuration, to convincingly propose sophisticated, intriguing and intangible pictorial worlds.
McIntosh will discuss her work in a free public lecture at UBC Okanagan on Tuesday, February 25, from noon to 1:15 p.m. in Room CCS223, Creative and Critical Studies Building. Onsite pay parking is available.
