Here’s one the pieces and the press release for my upcoming group exhibition. Fortunately, because of the alphabetized nature of the artist list, my name is next to Rodney Graham’s. It’s a privilege to be exhibiting with heros.

June 2nd to July 14th, 2012
Opening reception: Saturday June 2nd, 2 to 4pm
The term collage is derived from the French verb “coller,” which means “to glue,” however the medium and process of collage has broadened and come to include three-dimensional assemblage, digital stitching, video layering and more. As a creative strategy, collage often attempts to deviate from deliberate and reasoned constructions of meaning, relying instead on the use of residual imagery and objects to create narrative detours and fantastic new forms.
The artists in the exhibition are: Vikky Alexander, Roy Arden, Michael Batty, Raymond Boisjoly, Paul Butler, Sarah Cale, Gathie Falk, Geoffrey Farmer, Charles Gagnon, Lynda Gammon, Peter Gazendam, Rodney Graham, Randy Grskovic, Holger Kalberg, Christopher Kukura, Tiziana La Melia, Lyse Lemieux, Elizabeth McIntosh, Jason McLean, Al McWilliams, Ron Moppett, Office Supplies Incorporated, Toni Onley, Jean Paul Riopelle, Jack Shadbolt, Krisdy Shindler, Gordon Smith, Derek Sullivan, Jonathan Syme, Takao Tanabe, Harold Town, Allison Tweedie, Renée Van Halm, Etienne Zack, and Elizabeth Zvonar.
