Exhibition: ‘Compressed’


At his second Edinburgh exhibition in 25th May 2007, McIntosh showcased paint-splashed coils, brightly polished copper and imaginatively sculpted found materials that wowed visitors. Among the pieces on display was a exploratory piece called “Curly Wurly” which utilizes industrially compressed copper pipes, and a mounted bail of crushed aluminium cans, scratched until it sparkles. Textured and painted lead and zinc pieces also fired up the visitor’s imaginations. The copper assemblage “So long, and thanks for all the hot water” was a popular talking point.
