Two artists, Alex Liros and Gerrard Pook, worked jointly or collaborated on shows
in the late 1980s. Each artist brought with him the joy of art and art-making and
the joy of working and being together.
We first showed at Kozak Gallery , Toronto, in 1987 where they exhibited their jointly
produced metal sculptures and works on paper. Gerrard was the metal man while I
was the paint man. Our second and third shows at Kozak Gallery in 1988 and 1989
were a collaboration of Alex’s sculpture, paintings and drawings and Gerrard’s large
charcoal drawings, and smaller works by both artists. We also showed together at
the Sydenham Gallery north of Kingston, Ontario.
