Van Der Plas is pleased to present “No fric(k)tion” our exhibit by two legendary artist . Open from May 9th until May 21st, with an opening reception May 9th from 5pm till 8pm with refreshments.

this exhibition is about a time when a clash between McLean’s wife and kids caused tension in their household. The imagery of the work, depicted with marker and pencil, portrays a McDonald’s receipt that represents the moment when McLean walked to the corner fast-food restaurant to gain a reprieve. The original drawing was on an actual McDonald’s receipt before being transposed to the larger work. Like many of McLean’s mixed media drawings, this piece holds various motifs as representations of the artist’s surroundings. The illustrated memory is a mix of interactions between people and the environment through the shapes of the garbage depot, the local brewery, and a bird-like yellow walking figure. The work is a reminder of a moment and a peace truce.

Finally, McLean and Marinac have collaborated on a series of four collages this year titled Scissorhead (2023), Queen of Pike Place (2023), Diamond Faces (2023), and Tic Tac Toe (2023). The multi-layered works began when Marinac first laid down the collaged material on paper. As Marinac left them with a mutual intermediary, McLean picked them up while passing through on a trip and began drawing on them. The pieces represent a balance between the artists’ work. Further to these four pieces, the exhibition No Fric(k)tion aims at being a prosthetic of the artists’ collaborations, extending their meaning of their practices, and showcasing the shared talent of both.
