Joel Secter’s Colour Briefs® Opening at the Ottawa School of Art

Joel Secter’s first solo exhibition Colour Briefs® runs from November 8 – 20, 2018 at the Ottawa School of Art in the Byward Market. The Opening Reception is on November 8, 2018 from 6:00 – 9:00pm and everyone is welcome.

Colour Briefs®
November 8 – 20, 2018
Ottawa School of Art
35 George Street

Gallery Hours:
Monday to Thursday 9:30am – 9:00pm
Friday and Saturday 8:30am – 4:30pm
Sunday 12:30 – 4:30pm

First and foremost, Colour Briefs® is about materials, processes and creative exploration. It began as a series of paintings, delving into questions like why do we still paint? In equal measure, Colour Briefs® is about the fashion and apparel industry and our insatiable appetite to consume despite the known harmful impacts. It draws parallels to the art market and critiques the excessive commodification of art in the twenty-first century.

What follows is a brief description of what you will find in store; all sizes are in inches unless otherwise marked.

Size: S
Details
The Smalls are oil paintings on canvas boards, 9 x 12, exhibited in clear plastic bags. The complete set of Smalls will comprise ninety-eight (98) colours and be housed in a single filing cabinet (work-in-progress); the idea being that the collected works function as an art installation, colour reference library and sales catalogue all in one. Smalls will be available on gallery stretched canvas, 9 x 12 x 1.5, in your favourite artist grade oil colour.

Size: M
Details
The Mediums come as positive and negative linocut prints, 18 x 24. The black and white proofs exhibited were printed on newsprint, drawing, Masa and Stonehenge papers. As a travelling exhibition, Colour Briefs® is available for bookings worldwide and offers a custom limited edition pair of Mediums to be produced for each host art gallery.

Size: L
Details
The Larges are one of a kind, soft pastel drawings on 100% cotton rag paper, 30 x 40. Each of the Larges exhibited was created in one sitting. The idea was to make one a day over six days, Sunday to Friday, and name them Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. (On the seventh day, G-d rested.)

Size: XL
Details
The XL (prototype in acrylic on foamular insulation, 43 x 56.5 x 2) is a wall-mounted sculpture to be realized in acrylic lacquer on routed aluminum, a form pioneered by Manitoba artist Tony Tascona (1926-2006). XLs will be available in your choice of sporting colours.

Size: XXL
Details
The XXL (in development) is a large-scale work consisting of six three dimensional shapes, one in each of yellow, orange, red, green, blue and purple. Though not quite as large as the iconic TORONTO and OTTAWA signs in Nathan Phillips Square and Byward Market respectively, the XXL will be a lit outdoor destination where people can sit and take selfies.
