Brent Wadden: Two Scores

Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, BC - To Mar 25

by Robin Laurence

Acclaimed for his large-scale weavings that function as abstract paintings, Brent Wadden launched his career in Europe while living in Berlin. Now based in Vancouver, he has filled both of the gallery’s exhibition spaces, from floor to ceiling, with an ambitious installation of textile assemblages. A self-taught weaver, working with used yarn reclaimed from found blankets and garments, Wadden creates process-driven work that is described as “exploratory, laborious and purposefully naïve.”
