Cape Canaveral Curling, mixed media on panel, 48″ x 48″
Gallery Jones is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Paul Morstad. Morstad is a Vancouver-based painter, illustrator and film-maker whose narrative work is heavily influenced by the intersection of landscape, the natural world and the human experience. This is most strongly represented by Morstad’s use of maps as both an aesthetic and thematic element. From a compositional perspective the maps often form the background from which the fantastical emerges. This symbiotic relationship alludes to the human need to order and identify and also the idiosyncratic qualities of humankind, a species capable of mapping the ocean floor and coming up with curling.
“But cars and clay? Really? It’s not often that the two are thought of in the same sentence.”
