Small Spaces

Small spaces are not to be overlooked.

A sense of intimacy can be conveyed through small portraits depicting curious characters or potential lovers.

Spiders from Mars

New Arrivals

New works by Vilhelm Sundin, Emily Hermant, Jeremy Hof, Graham Gillmore, and Jonathan Syme.

Evan Lee: Cirage

Lee’s large-scale shoe polish paintings resemble iconic monochromatic paintings seminal to modern art of the 1950’s and 60s. This work considers tension between high art and low-class materials, pointing to the classism inherent in the economy of artistic production.

Collin Johanson: New Paintings

Johanson’s paintings often exist in a state between figuration and abstraction, where forms never fully become fixed. Instability keeps these images in flux, resisting easy interpretation. Johanson won the Joseph Plaskett Foundation Award in 2014, and was an RBC Painting Competition finalist in 2008.

Collin Johanson: Watercolours

Over several trips to Jasper National Park, Johanson paints forested landscapes. These paintings serve as research towards a forthcoming body of work which will incorporating the organic and chaotic qualities of his abstract depictions of nature against rigid architectural forms, and linear perspective.

Porta

Known for his innovative use of paint, Jeremy Hof’s oeuvre is process, and playfully blurring the lines delineating traditional artistic mediums. His paintings take sculptural form through the patient application of acrylic paint built up over time, often several years.

Rocky LaRock: New Works

LaRock has had a career as a practicing artist for over forty years, during which time he has produced a number of masks that are easily recognizable as Northwest Coast Indigenous art: they are immaculately carved by hand, represent familiar mythological and spiritual figures, and are adorned with the conventional ovoids and forms characteristic of traditional formline techniques.

Jonathan Syme: Up and High,
Down and Low

The title, Up and High, Down and Low, suggests an exploration of dualities. Contrasts between light and shadow, chaos and tranquillity, or expansion and confinement create a visual dialogue between these opposing elements.

Objects of Affection by Max King

Objects of Affection explores the interplay between objects, context, and the observer’s interpretation. The exhibition transcends the conventional boundaries of artistic expression, embracing the paradoxical order of eclectic curation and the natural world.

Liminal Spaces by Andrew Booth

Liminal spaces refers to the transitional, in-between places that exist on the thresholds of our consciousness and reality. This exhibition presents works by several of Monte Clark’s artists that explore the psychological, physical, and spiritual dimensions of these transitional realms.

Gailan Ngan

Moonage Daydream
This latest body of work presents a large-scale exploration of Ngan’s Blob ceramic forms, each with distinctive patterning and decorative elements. Ngan worked closely with a digital studio to scan and produce 3D-printed variations of her signature forms in rich vibrant hues, maintaining the intricate details and textures of the original ceramic work.

Arden, Kydd, Sundin

Consisting of scenes that unfold in urban settings, Kydd and Sundin examine tensions between the familiar and artificial, while Arden depicts scenes of Vancouver unrecognizable in the aftermath of the 1994 Stanley Cup riot. These works provide a multifaceted view of the city, as a site of intertwined perspectives and narratives that inform our experiences and identity along with a degree of unpredictability.

Karin Bubaš

Chromatic Landscape
Rooted in the cinematic, Bubaš’ photographs depict a single subject set against dramatic landscapes from a snow-covered forest to a dahlia field in full bloom. 

Tim Gardner

New watercolours by Gardner depict ideal natural settings and commercial scenes, from gold panners sifting along river banks, to grocery store aisles, and luminous bottles of vintage Canadian whisky.

Graham Gillmore

Unfound Objects
An exhibition of new paintings and sculptures by Graham Gillmore. On view is a collection of work that examines language as form, shifting from the colourful oil and enamel paintings we are familiar with to monochromatic and abstract sculptures.
