*Jim Verburg*â€‰â€‰ O/ Divided/Defined, Weights, Measures, and Emotional Geometry
From the ongoing series (I see your point, and I understand your perspective – maybe there is no clear direction, no right or wrong answer. Maybe I’m just seeing it differently – or maybe we’re saying the same thing.)
In this publication, Verburg focuses specifically on the circle and line in his practice, both as an aesthetic celebration of the form, as well as the possibility of form to represent ideas of the whole or self. Moving between image, object and idea – exploring personal and interpersonal negotiations of thought, emotion, intention and meaning.
With this book, Dazibao awards Jim Verburg the Dazibao Prize for his solo exhibition One and Two, presented by Galerie B-312 during the 2011 edition of the Mois de la Photo Ã MontrÃ©al. The recipient of the Dazibao Prize is given the opportunity to produce a book as part of Dazibao’s series Les portables.
