LExICON – The Art of Bailey Bob Bailey
January 28–February 28, 2009
Provincetown artist Bailey Bob Bailey is a context collector. He collects objects and recalls the light; he gathers words and notes that text itself has form. A play on the words "Lexicon" and "Le Icon," LExICON is about form and language, two major elements of Bailey’s body of work and a dictionary, of sorts, of the way he makes art.
