Alan Switzer" Peace Love Dope" 2011, acrylic on linen, 48" x 72"
Please join us on Friday, December 7th for our new gallery space opening in conjunction with the launch of Allan Switzer's exhibition SEE ME FEEL ME.
Allan Switzer, a Vancouver artist, was born in Calgary in 1955. He is not only a product of Vancouver sensibilities and a philosophy degree from York University, but also a by-product of the second generation Conceptualists’ of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, who made up a large part of the ECIAD faculty during his time at school. Allan utilizes the motifs of abstraction, minimalist grids, stripes and images, and fonts and these works can be read as complex systems of reference, effecting a collision of signs and elements of disparate painterly discourse. The specific interrelationships of these appropriated parts leave meaning residing not in some essence or identity but precisely in the interplay of the various elements.
