ARC Gallery is celebrating their 40 year anniversary with an exhibit titled “Approaching 40.” Two of my pieces will be on display. In 1995, these same two works were shown at the ARC Regional II Exhibition. The show was judged by Mr. Richard Francis, the chief curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, who previously had been the curator of contemporary art at the Tate in London. 300 artists submitted art works, only 20 were selected. This 1995 exhibit led to individual exhibits of my work at ARC in 1997 and 2011.
Of note is the Canadian content in both of the pieces. One was an installation on Toronto’s Sunnyside beach, and the other in the Canadian high arctic. Both of these images were subsequently transformed and used in my large-scale paintings on canvas.
