I Don't Own An Alarm Clock, 2014

Jason McLean

Wilding Cran Gallery

First of all, soda and gardeners don’t usually go together; that’s not to say that all gardeners must abstain from soda or that soda doesn’t sometimes yearn for the garden, but it’s an unlikely alliance, yet Jason McLean’s exhibition at Wilding Cran is a playful and witty gestural experience, one wherein neither the soda nor the gardener make an appearance, yet one thing is very clear—that the artist is having the time of his life. The strongest work in the show is a strangely engaging drawing entitled I Don’t Own An Alarm Clock, and one can assume from the title that the artist has thrown over all manner of self-regulation, opting instead for pure unadulterated fun.
