    Roy Arden's (82) first solo exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery since 1993, UNDERTHESUN will present work in a wide array of media, from intimate handmade collage to large kinetic sculptures. While well-known for his austere photographs depicting transformative effects on Vancouver's cityscape and its surroundings, he has also always performed a parallel combing of the larger image world. Amassing a personal archive of paper and later digital images, for Arden these are crucial in providing clues to an understanding of history and modernity.

    Science helps to define our universe, yet so much remains unknown. The unexplainable becomes poetic through our efforts to understand. Current fourth year student Stephanie Frame's practice is driven by a desire to render the 'supernatural' visible, and search for a reaction beyond our everyday expectations. Much of Stephanie’s work is formed through a physical process, primarily printmaking, but also includes other forms such as sculpture and bookmaking. She finds "the manual process of printmaking allowing for an intimacy and visceral connection with this intangible subject matter.” As her artistic practice evolves, her investigation into the ephemeral unknown grows.
