    Neil Wedman : Death Ray

    No full text
    This exhibition's large-scale charcoal and pastel drawings address issues of social allegory, myth, irony and death. The brief essay draws an analogy between Wedman's investigation of belief structures and the larger search on the part of West coast artists to identify an authentic experience in an isolated environment where historic elements are alien and displaced. Reflecting the exhibition, the catalogue culminates in Wedman's large, 18-panel drawing, "Death Ray" (1987)

    Mina Totino : Paintings

    No full text
    Essayist Nichols introduces Totino's work by discussing the representation of flesh, both by Jean Genet's "Our Lady of the Flowers" and in de Kooning's figural abstractions of the 1950's: the materiality as well as the symbolic function of the image. She identifies in Totino's richly worked painterly canvases the presence of narrative (images taken from the media) and anti-narrative (the expressionistic interplay between colour and form) each one undermining the purity of the other. In-depth analysis of all works in the exhibition. Biographical notes. 6 bibl. ref

    Gordon Rayner : Peintures construites = Gordon Rayner : Constructed Paintings

    No full text
    In tracing his career in the Toronto art community, Paikowsky points out Rayner's early interest in collage. The constructed paintings of this exhibition, however, are a departure from the large-scale wood constructions and abstract landscape paintings of that early work. These new pieces, produced from 1983 to 1985 are assemblages of found objects unified by layers of paint, of intimate scale and delicate colour. Hans Arp, Jasper Johns and especially Giorgio Morandi are seen as influences. Biographical notes
