Jon McIntosh recently joined the Lucky Street fold with small surreal sculptures. Ann Landi of ARTnews says: “An accomplished realist painter for many years, McIntosh branched out into mixed-media abstractions, collage, and what he calls “Constructs”….small, generally disagreeable objects that are reminiscent of the best of the Surrealist surprises… and nostalgic mementoes like S&H green stamps….his works on paper may call to mind earlier masters of collage like Anne Ryan and Robert Motherwell, but the pluralism McIntosh embraces is purely Postmodern.”
McIntosh’s work has been widely exhibited throughout the eastern United States, with shows in Providence, RI, Boston, Martha’s Vineyard, Key West, and New Orleans. Branching farther out, he has participated in shows in London and Vieques, Puerto Rico. He recently was featured in ARTnews for his contribution to the 2011 Sculpture Key West exhibition at Fort Zachary Taylor. His large sculpture, #2 Pencil, will take pride of place in the Lucky Street Sculpture Garden this fall.
