The Campus Gallery at Georgian College, Barrie Campus, is pleased to present

James Gardner: Selenotropic

James Gardner’s work speaks directly to us about its construction. It reveals a topography and structural integrity made of surprising connections. In describing his process he explains “while experimenting ….the support of a painting was constructed in tandem with pictorial development. Instead of using a preconceived rectilinear structure, I began constructing supports that entered into a direct complimentary relationship with the surface of my paintings. This concern led to cutting apart works, recombining parts of paintings, fusing works together, and so on. As this process evolved, the boundaries between discrete works began to erode. I became interested in the space of the studio itself, systems of making, agency, and how material processes can generate meaning and create new forms of knowledge.”

Allowing the work to invade boundaries within art disciplines, a generous spirit of play is evident. Within the sheer volume of components pictorial structure emerges; an engagement with the landscape. Saturated colour reveals an absorption of environmental cues. Created at his studio in the Docklands area of Toronto, he makes the elemental interactions of sky, water, and land available to us; punctuated by both animal life and the castoffs and detritus of an industrial area.

James Gardner is a member of the collective VSVSVS and is represented by Katzman Contemporary of Toronto.

On view daily 10am - 4pm from September 21 - October 15.
