Sasha Pierce, "Lake Superior Agate," 2012, oil on linen, 12” x 8”.
Curator Jennifer Matotek reconsiders the formalist aesthetics of modernism, which influenced many Saskatchewan artists via the Emma Lake workshops. Who’s Afraid of Purple, Orange and Green? features work by female artists, who were largely excluded from the movement’s original discourse. Matotek’s focus is on recent work that engages minimalism or geometric abstraction with new conceptual, narrative or aesthetic twists. Artists include Krista Buecking, Arabella Campbell, Jessica Eaton, Marie Lannoo, Sarah Nasby, Sasha Pierce, Jennifer Rose Sciarrino, Celia Perrin Sidarous, Daniel Borins and Jennifer Marman.
April 25 to June 20, 2014 at the Dunlop Art Gallery in Regina.
