Jack Shadbolt (1909-1998) is one of Canada’s most important artists. He is known for his paintings and murals that draw from his personal experiences and from the social and political conflicts that have taken place in British Columbia’s and world history such as the struggles of the First Nations, the Second World War, and environmental movement. Jack Shadbolt: Underpinnings is a celebration of the artist’s centenary and includes over 150 drawings and sketches from the Collection of the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery [more]

Lots of Stuff – Tara Donovan

November 6, 2008 § 4 Comments

I can think of so many references related to her work, and still it stands out as being fresh and original. Tara Donovan amasses enormous quantities of things – styro foam cups, pencils, scotch tape, paper, toothpicks, pins – and gives them a whole new shape and meaning.

The related names I have in my mind are Brian Jungen, Rachel Whiteread, Sarah SzeChris Natrop, Richard Long.

A couple of months ago The New York Times published a very good article about her.
