Synthesis: Immaterial Tendencies in Art

“Synthesis” creates a poetic lens on the exploration of the immaterial tendencies in art. For some of our artists, the use of material was determined purely by the formal demands of the construction of the artwork, and these artists create spatial discourse through visual material. Underlying these works is a design that belies the sometimes impermanence of their chosen material, and a reference to form, boundary, and time, which becomes influential factors that affect the ephemeral practice in art.

Featuring works by Charlotte Wall, Tony Robins, David Spriggs, Robert Kelly, and others.

Also included in this exhibition are two new artists that we are pleased to introduce to our gallery: Los Angeles based Pritzker Prize and AIA Gold Medal award winning architect Thom Mayne, and respected and accomplished Vancouver based artist, architect, and former gallerist Michael Bjornson.
