In conjunction with his solo exhibition Versions, Lexier has curated a small group show in the anterior space of the gallery. Following a typical strategy, These Five Things includes a senior artist, Ric Evans, two artists of his own generation, Joy Walker and Martin Bourdeau, and two emerging artists, Matthew Feyld and Sean Stewart, all with one work each. Resonating with Lexier’s interest in geometric form, each of these works takes a linear approach to dividing or multiplying the space of the work. By coincidence each work has a number in its title. Numbers, of course, are the basis for a whole other category of games which Lexier plays here with decided skill.
