Ron Moppett: Recent Paintings with Prettymuch/Everything
10/3/2014 - 10/25/2014
Ron Moppett’s paintings are carefully constructed abstractions. His paintings combine symbols, images and reference a diverse range of subjects from pop advertising to art history. Each element relates to one another with their meanings often overlapping and evolving. The paintings are similar to an archeological excavation: layers of meaning waiting to be decoded. Moppett, however, is more interested in the abstract nature of his work and its relationship to culture than the specific narrative. It is left to the viewer to use our own experiences to create the meaning.
Gathie Falk -- Lux: Water
11/1/2014 - 11/22/2014
Opening Reception with Gathie Falk on Saturday, November 1 from 2-4pm
This is Gathie Falk's third series of paintings that she has dedicated to the theme of water. Gathie Falk lives in Vancouver near Kitsilano Bay, though, she is not painting a specific body of water. Instead, these new paintings, included in "Lux: Water," appear to have been cut out of the environment - slices or pieces of water from her imagination. Painted thinly, Falk wants the paintings to feel fluid, almost like you are on top of the water, looking down at the beautiful combination of colours and textures.
Working in painting, sculpture, installation and performance, Gathie Falk has spent more than four decades creating art that aims to be a “veneration of the ordinary.”
In her art, Falk has repeatedly explored motifs of the domestic and everyday, choosing shoes, fruit, eggs and clothing, among other everyday objects, as her subject matter.
In 2013, Gathie Falk was awarded the Audain Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Visual Arts. She is also the recipient of the Gershon Iskowitz Prize (1990), the Order of Canada (1997) and the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts (2003).
