    Catriona Jeffries Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of Ron Terada’s (’91) new series of paintings, Jack.

    Initiated in 2009 while on residency at the Banff Centre, Terada began the project of painting the six specific chapters from the book Jack Goldstein and the CalArts Mafia that had been written by the American artist Jack Goldstein, before his untimely suicide in 2003.  The book chronicles Goldstein’s life as an artist while at the same time charting the emergence of artists from CalArts in the 70s, and their migration to New York and the subsequent failures and successes of artists from the period.

    The Gam Galley presents Marina Glynn's ('11) first solo exhibition as part of Swarm 12.

    Glynn’s sculptural works are a unique example of skill and craft that challenges the properties of sculpture. The hot-rolled method of working steel allows Glynn to intentionally counteract the material’s solidity by embedding hollowed-out forms in the larger structure, thereby exposing the sculpture’s interior. A shifting play of presence and absence, strength and grace reflects Glynn’s creative relationship with steel, which stems from an artisanal or tradesman-like capability of the hands.

    For this exhibition, a selection of Glynn’s studies on paper have been included to elaborate on the artist’s working process.

    Longing is an installation of innovative, new work by Vancouver-based artist Sonny Assu ('02) composed of sculptures and photographs. The sculptures are found objects now displayed conceptually as “masks.” As found objects they provide the core focus of the investigation undertaken by the artist. Within this context, found is juxtaposed to lost, or an art and culture altered or displaced by conditions of colonialism and European settlement. The artist uses longing to suggest a history reexamined and reclaimed.

    The Writing Lesson is an exhibition by Raymond Boisjoly (06) at Republic Gallery.

    The Writing Lesson* looks to the visual component of the heavy metal subgenre of black metal as a vernacular mode of writing to illustrate place names with indigenous origins. A significant amount of black metal music seeks to recuperate pre-Christian spiritual elements in the face of the forceful encroachment of monotheistic faiths. Through a rudimentary photographic process, the light of the sun has burned the names of places such as Masset, Skidegate, Chilliwack and Yakima into plain black construction paper with the hope more will be revealed than concealed.
