A Conversation with Rick Burns

EXHIBITION: Thursday, March 21st 2013 @ 7PM

A Conversation with Rick Burns pairs five of Burns’ sculptural works, including “Lead Them To Water” (1999), with corresponding two and three dimensional works by Saint John based artist Suzanne Hill. Approaching the chains, welded metal and sharp edges of Burns’ sculptures, and the sterility and frustration they might evoke, Hill’s response extends into soft, fleshy, organic forms – something suggested by Burns’ sculptures through a deliberate omission.

As Connexion ARC celebrates thirty years of dynamic, contemporary art programming, we are excited to present a ‘conversation’ between our founding member Rick Burns, and Suzanne Hill – an active member of Connexion since its earliest years.
