State Gallery is pleased to present their holiday season group show featuring recently completed new work from artists Jim Breukelman, Angela Leach, Mark Mullin, Danny Singer and Brian G. White. Jim Breukelman will exhibit his Stillborn series. Anglela Leach shows her abstract paintings. Mark Mullin bases his work on investigations into perception and physical space. Danny Singer’s new works are photograhpic based. And Brian G. White will present his very controlled paintings.
Jim Breukelman’s Stillborn series in new 16” x 20” size format depict the shipyard of the BC FastCat ferry project. These beautiful photos highlight their dramatic construction while the title makes allusions to their complicated history.
Anglela Leach has recently completed a successfully solo show at the Cambridge Galleries, Ontario. Her abstract paintings draw on her experience as a weaver and investigate the optical and spatial transformation of the picture plane using repetition in combination with colour and line.
Mark Mullin bases his work on investigations into perception and physical space. He has had shows at Trepanier Baer in Calgary and Leo Kaman in Toronto.
Danny Singer’s new works employs a unique, custom-built photographic device which he uses to document images of the complex structure of foam bubbles, presenting an internal view of its structural makeup and properties.
Brian G. White uses self-imposed restrictions to explore the possibilities created by constraints in his exploration of painting and pattern. This becomes part of an attempt to flatten narrative and gesture, producing extremely controlled acts of painting.
