EXHIBITION LISTING





Black & White
4/5/2014 - 4/26/2014

For the month of April in our main gallery we will be showing late monochromatic works by London artist Margot Ariss (1929-2013) and St. Thomas artist Clark McDougall (1921-1980). Though both artists worked in very different mediums (Margot with clay and Clark with paint), they both understood innately the importance of composition, light, shadow and texture. By not using any colour, both artists created an incredible sense of atmosphere, movement and energy in their work. Margot Ariss's sculpted clay panels from the early 1980s combine clay letters with complex molded and shaped forms. The clay is combined with plaster, canvas, cloth, acrylic and cellulose to build up the smooth rolling designs that hint at snow falls, storms and empty landscapes. She appeals to our emotions through the combined use of light, texture and shadow and the poignant clay lettered poems. Using only the colour of the white gesso, and the shadows created from the forms, Ariss relies on the raw materials and sculpted forms to create the atmosphere. Clark McDougall is best known for his "black enamel" style of painting. In the early 1960s, McDougall's style style changed significantly where the outline became very important to the structure and design of the painting. He quickly embraced the quick drying black enamel car paint which distinguished his style from other regional artists. These newly discovered late 1970s black enamel paintings in our exhibition reveal McDougall's incredible mastery of composition and rhythm. McDougall paints the farms and roads that he is familiar with: Charlie Rowe's House, Stevenson's side yard and Kettle Creek Valley, however, this time, he chooses to remove emotive colour and instead paints playful patterns that delight our eye.
