I went to the Ken Lum exhibition @ The Vancouver Art Gallery. Check out http://bit.ly/dWPTdQ for show information.
“Like mirrors he often employs, Ken Lum’s three decades of work can be seen as a powerful reflective device. Addressing the social and psychological forces that define our contemporary existence, this art confronts us with our own active participation in these forces and reveals the strategies we employ to negotiate them in our everyday public and private lives” excerpt from the user guide.//
At the BeatNation show and behokd work done by me. They have a Room with a projector and Adobe Illustrator hooked up to a mouse. You get to have fun and make art at an Art show. Amazingm
When I heard about the Beyond Wonderland show presented by Around The Way through a friend and being lucky enough to see what kind of work was going to be shown I knew I wanted to go. Beyond Wonderland the shows Theme which each Artist conveyed was imagery exploring Fairy Tales like Alice In Wonderland and Little Red Riding Hood. The show was held close my realm of things, located at The Box Studios in EastVan.
Like most group shows I’ve been to this show was full of many great local Artists & Photographers.
Most Artists portrayed their idea of beyond Wonderland in Avant Garde or less than conventional way, no DisneyLand animations here. Saying that the title Beyond Wonderland is more than apropos.
I recently went to the El Kartel and PF Flyers event called Art & Sole. The event featured local artists who customized PF Flyers. Partial proceeds went to Arts Umbrella.
I recently dropped by Ayden Gallery and was captivated by the choices in some of the Art being shown. They usually show a mix of Graffiti influenced Art and contemporary art that is on cutting edge of visuals for twenty somethings. I’ve always enjoyed their selections but this time something caught my eye not just because it was esthetically pleasing, it was the iconic indigenous imagery layered with symbolism fixed in a deeper meaning almost dream like yet primitive that struck me.
After looking at his site I am for sure going to be looking out for his work.
