Travelling ART Exhibit
Graham Peacock Collage
Kate Andrews is hosting this exhibit from
November 14 - December 5, 2018
Graham Peacock has been a significant figure on both the Edmonton and International art scene since he moved to Edmonton in 1969. Over the decades he has developed unique ways of drawing with paint; manipulated the forms of his canvases; formulated his own paint mediums; spear-headed the formation of important art groups and assisted in fostering a climate of favorable to abstraction in Edmonton. Through his teaching at the University of Alberta he has also shaped the artistic visions of countless students.
The exhibition Graham Peacock Collage celebrates the vibrant and diverse career of Edmonton based artist Graham Peacock; a career characterized by experimentation and relentless search for ways to express his love of colour, form and the world around him. Inspired by and featuring the artist's painted collage works, a primary focus of this exhibition concerns Peacock's major commitment to abstraction.
While inspired by the artist's collage paintings, however, this exhibition also considers Peacock's studies in watercolour landscape painting. According to the artisit...Art reveals our spirit and humanity...and in pursuit of his aesthetic goals he places no limitations on the art styles he engages in, only questioning what...the quality of the experience, as art, is. Without narrowly defining his practice, Peacock moves freely between representation and abstraction, demonstrating that the only limitations to painting are to be found in the material of the paint itself.
The travelling exhibition Graham Peacock Collage explores the sense of freedom as it is expressed in both representational and abstract paintings created by this senior Edmonton artist. Through this investigation the viewer is invited to encounter both...boundless creativity...and artistic perceptions which seek to inspire and uplift in spirit.
The exhibition Graham Peacock Collage was curated by Shane Golby and organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program. The AFA Travelling Exhibition program is supported by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
