Jason McLean's second solo exhibition at Jessica Bradley Gallery includes several drawings made over the past year and an array of unique sculptural objects. Together these form a characteristic narrative of the artist's life and work in his cultural and social environment since returning to his native London, Ontario after a restless period of moves from the West Coast back to Central Canada. As Director/Curator James Patton writes about McLean's spirited survey exhibition, if you could read my mind, for London's McIntosh Gallery: "McLean's chronic mapping captures, with dazzling vertigo, his restless movements through an ever-changing terrain of cultural and social relations."
Jason McLean has had solo exhibitions at the McIntosh Gallery, University of Western Ontario (multi-author catalogue forthcoming) and the Vancouver Art Gallery (2005). McLean's work is currently featured in Builders, the biennial of recent acquisitions at the National Gallery of Canada, and has also been featured in group exhibitions at the Textile Museum of Canada, Toronto (2012); the Vancouver Art Gallery (2011); Artspeak, Vancouver (2010) and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto (2009). His work and will be included in forthcoming exhibitions at Museum London and Galerie de l'UQAM, Montreal in 2013.
