ANGELL GALLERY is pleased to present our annual “Summer Group Show,” curated by Gareth Brown-Jowett, featuring the works of artists Philippe Blanchard, Esther Choi, Thrush Holmes, Daniel Hutchinson, Brendan George Ko, Caroline Larsen, and Andrew Myers. The exhibition will be on display in the West Gallery from Saturday July 23rd to Saturday, August 20th, 2011. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, July 23rd from 1 – 4pm. Surprise is a major element in determining what we enjoy, what edifies us, and what stays with us in art. Both formally and thematically, it is the challenge of artists in our time – especially within our image-soaked culture – to challenge their audience. The basic problem is, how to make works that speak with an individual tone of voice, and surprise their audience into the shock of recognition and pleasure that always accompanies our confronting something original. In this summer group show, the gallery has arrayed a group of challenging young artists across our space, arranging them into patterns and configurations that broadly juxtapose. But they all have one thing in common: employing technique or imagery (or both) in ways that give delight by displaying characteristics that genuinely do surprise. These works boldly declare themselves, infused with summer’s brash energy and warmth, in a variety of media. From Daniel Hutchinson’s panoramic black monochrome, reminiscent of minimal and geometric abstraction but in fact representative of Stratford Ontario’s Festival Theatre, to Caroline Larsen’s psychedelic blanket-like patterns in oil paint; to Andrew Myer’s witty, conceptually charged provocations; to Brendan George Ko’s inscrutable re-mixes of photographic portraits and still lives, the artists in this show, both in their own right and installed next to each other on the walls of Angell Gallery, all generate a unique and engaging conversation with the viewer. Many surprises are in store.
