Review: Helen Hughes, “John Meade at McClelland Art Gallery”, ArtForum

Read Helen Hughes’ insightful review of John Meades’s recent exhibition It’s Personal! at McClelland Gallery in ArtForum, March 2024.

“Meade has honed his craftsmanship across an impressive range of materials and methods (including resin, fiberglass, and enamel, as well as casting and TIG welding) so as to produce taut surfaces that rebuff, or perhaps even deny, interiority. Whether deployed as a veil or as armor, Meade’s exteriors disarm the relationship between a subject and its knowability.”
