Large And In Charge
Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, Banff, AB - To Jan 27, 2019
Does size matter? This group show of large-scale works by mid-career Canadian artists suggests that, yes, bigger is better. Or at least more impressive. Artists represented are Michael Cameron, Adad Hannah, Sebastian Hutchings, Alex Janvier, Evan Penny, Jay Senetchko and – lest you think size is only an issue for men – Vancouver artist Ann Goldberg, whose huge painting of a woman swimming underwater plays hyper-realism against the expressive use of form and colour.
