James Nizam

James Nizam's body of work, Anteroom, was featured in the Summer 2008 issue of Canadian Art magazine. The review, by Dion Kliner, describes the process:

Nizam turned the interiors of abandoned, soon-to-be-demolished homes into room-sized camera obscuras. He then photographed the results with a 35-mm camera. In his photographs, we see the character of the rooms and the jumbled leavings of the former occupants. They become backdrops that sometimes blend with the imagery projected on the walls, ceiling and floor, and sometimes fragment it beyond recognition... The result is a series of photographs that is compelling and evocative. The discarded shells of these Vancouver homes are given a final, surprising purpose - beauty.

This series of photographs was also reviewed by Robin Laurence in Border Crossings (vol. 27 #1, Issue 105):

Nizam's background in installation art and his ongoing sculptural practice are evident in Stack of Doors and Pile of Cabinets in Room, shots that appear as much constructed as found... Pile of Cabinets is visually more complex and thematically more rich. In this image, torn-out cabinets and other building forms and materials dumped outside appear to interpenetrate similar debris piled up inside the room. The intersecting and intermingling of these used and bruised planes are evocative of many forms of early Modernism, from Cubism and Constructivism to a Kurt Schwitters's Merzbau.

Otto Rogers

Otto Donald Rogers: Monograph

This is the first major monograph on the work of Otto Rogers and features 60 illustrations, 160 pages, an introduction by Sky Glabush, a foreward by Sir Anthony Caro and an essay by Rogers that illuminates his thoughts on the relationship between artistic and spiritual practice.

The book is also available in a limited edition of 75, which contains a unique, signed constructed monotype print, derived from woodblock imagery.

There is also a limited edition of 20 that includes an original work of art by Otto.

The book is published by Radius Books.

Michael Abraham

Michael Abraham and the Vancouver Opera Society

Michael Abraham has been commissioned by the Vancouver Opera Society to complete a series of four paintings based on the operas they will be performing in the 2008-2009 season: Rigoletto, Carmen, Onegin and Salome.

Toni Hafkenscheid

Toni Hafkenscheid in The Globe and Mail

At the time of the Contact Photo Festival (2008) in Toronto, Toni Hafkenscheid's images were featured both in print and online, by The Globe and Mail.

Hafkenscheid's technique was highlighted for the way in which it lends itself to the expression of memory and narrative, fictional or otherwise.

 

Tricia Cline

Tricia Cline receives Pollock / Krasner Grant

The Pollock / Krasner Foundation, founded by the artist Lee Krasner, who is also the widow of Jackson Pollock, aids in the careers of established artists through a highly selective granting process. Tricia Cline, whose porcelain sculpture has gained attention internationally through participation with Gallery Jones at art fairs in London, Los Angeles and Toronto, is a recent recipient.

Gallery Jones is pleased to be representing several talented new artists.

Kristin Bjornerud holds an MFA from the University of Saskatchewan and a BFA with Great Distinction from the University of Lethbridge. She has taught courses in drawing and painting in the Department of Art and the Extensions Division of the University of Saskatchewan, as well as at Emma Lake. She has been awarded two Saskatchewan Arts Board Grants, and has work in the collections of the Canada Council Art Bank, the Saskatchewan Arts Board and Citibank, Toronto.

George Vergette has gained a lot of attention for his layered, resin paintings, and a recent Canadian Art review of his work notes this. The subtle, smouldering light in his paintings serves to give a sense of deep space and the cryptic text often included, buried or sitting grahically on top, is in various states of emerging from this darkness. Vegette's paintings are very constructed, built on panels, so it is natural to view them with his more recent sculpural creations which continue his fascination with the relationship between light and darkness. It is a relationship that plays out not only in the material and asethetics of his work, but also in his choice of symbols from both the natural and constructed world, such as animals or language.
