Jake Boone
14 – 18 April 1997

Jake Boone's MFA Thesis exhibition, Binding Ties, features his series of paintings which call up questions of Boone's own uncertain national identity. Loosely figurative, Boone's lexicon includes symbols of ties and cigars and conduits; imagery that has currency as 'power', particulary in North American culture. There is a necessary tension in Boone's painting that results from the sensuality of surface and jarring subject matter.

The Art Gallery of York University is one of the few university galleries in Canada that offers its resources to students enrolled in the graduate programs in Visual Arts. Each year, the AGYU hosts two MFA thesis exhbitions. These exhibitions showcase the work of advanced students in this program, preparing them for their ongoing careers. The MFA Thesis Exhibitions are part of an endeavour by the AGYU to extend our relationship with the Faculty of Graduate Studies, thereby enriching our commitment to the development of Canada' s future professionals.
