Eastside Culture Crawl 2016
233 Main street. Vancouver. 17-20 November 2016
“Death Mask” – Two of the large oil paintings about how it feels to be a human living alongside and interacting with the condemned Vancouver Viaducts, will be in my studio during the 20th Annual Eastside Culture Crawl.
These paintings are honest and raw as they have no other purpose than to explore how they, as paintings, are uniquely suited to express our reflections on the Viaducts. The 3 paintings: Complexity, The Plaza and 49°16’36.7″N 123°05’50.7″W have been conceived to sit within the research arm of my studio practice with the result that they each go a little further as paintings as it is the process of them which is important not the final piece. They are also currently only available to view in the studio.
49°16’36.7″N 123°05’50.7″W finally introduced the idea of redaction into painting. I have being toying with redaction for 3 years and finally found a painting where it’s use is far beyond the gimmick.
