The work of Geoff McFetridge is concerned with the human condition. He engages existence and semiotics from a curious, pragmatic, poetic and personal point of departure. His paintings, drawings and sculptures often (quite literally) circle around topics such as beginning and end, relation and understanding, perception, the transcendental and the unconscious. But in McFetridge’s work these common human themes are investigated with the lightness of an intuitive graphic vocabulary. Complex and dense while equally fragile and sparse, McFetridge’s visual language is dance and mountaineering: heavy in preparation, light in execution.
On a raw canvas a couple embrace and fade to bright blue geometry, or vice versa, depending on the mind of the beholder. The figurative merges with the abstract and transforms into a new lexicon beyond the confinements of verbal and written language. The shape has life and we recognize it with empathy. Or some will. Keeping your eyes and mind open is prerequisite for fully engaging with McFetridge’s art. Intuition is not to be mistaken for easy.
Coming Back Is Half The Trip consists of 8 paintings on canvas and a sculpture group of animal forms in powder coated steel. The exhibition offers new approaches to cognition. McFetridge ventures on to the ledge of meaning, bringing us with him on a trip that we can sense, but struggle to verbalize. A meditative, empathic state of mind, where we are connected beyond time and words in recognition of our complex existence.
