Lori Goldberg. Reconstructing Nature III, 2017. Acrylic on canvas. 24" x 36"

Fences - Artists from across BC

Shirley Babcock, Emilie Crewe, Samantha Dickie, Lori Goldberg, Betty Kovacic, mary mottishaw, Susan Neilson, Perry Rath, Michael Rees, Rachel Rozanski

Like a wall, fences keep people, animals, or things apart from each other, control access, or prevent escape. A fence can be an invisible boundary built from assumptions, preconceptions, cultural differences, and bias - or a friendly boundary born of respect. In the face of a resurgent global nationalism, fences and walls have particular connotations. We're inviting BC artists to consider the power 'fences' have over our behaviour and the different types of physical or metaphoric fences that exist politically, socially and personally. Artwork by artists working in a range of media will be selected from across the province.

Mitchell Wiebe. What're Friends For Part IV, 2004. Oil on canvas.

Bad Magic

Mitchell Wiebe

Rainbows, unicorns and other figures populate Halifax artist Mitchell Wiebe’s paintings. As wry embodiments of humour and kitsch, they declare the artist’s deep commitment to the imagination. While he draws from art movements that include symbolism and surrealism, Wiebe ultimate aims to lose himself to a deeply intuitive approach to painting. The world that emerges through these large paintings offer an irreverent, revelrous and sometimes raucous spectacle, in which the viewer might lose themselves in turn.
