Vancouver artist Brian Boulton returns with a new series of drawings. Referenced from his own digital photographs, the artist uses graphite to render, in hyper-realist detail, anonymous subjects in the kind of street clothes we see daily. With no context other than a frame and white backdrop, Boulton’s pedestrians pop out at the viewer. While the artist’s earlier work focused on anonymous subjects turned away from the viewer, this new series has evolved to include partially revealed faces.
Christian Nicolay offers a new series of work titled “Collections in Faith”, considering knowledge, learning and meaning as the bridge to the idea of how our perception of reality is altered by the very nature of the act of collecting. The work is an examination of the objects the artist has chosen to surround himself with; objects with no monetary value that nonetheless accumulate in junk drawers or on window sills. Over time, such collections begin to form alters of ritual, articles on which we can project our passions, desires, beliefs, wants and faith.
