Art (Tour) for Lunch with Exhibiting Artist Tammi Campbell
Friday, March 22, 12:15 to 1 pm.
PLEASE NOTE the location change to Janice Laking Gallery *
Join Saskatoon-based exhibiting artist Tammi Campbell for a walk-through of her solo exhibition, Double Remove, on view in Janice Laking Gallery from March 21 to June 23, 2019. Campbell’s art practice engages with the tradition of Modernist and Minimalist painting by referring, either explicitly or implicitly, to the legacies of Agnes Martin, Frank Stella or Sol LeWitt. Campbell humorously probes the specificity of the medium of painting and the fetishism of the creative process through paintings made in the style of trompe l’œil, but which appear to remain unfinished. Her “in progress” and “unfinished” aesthetic draws upon various materials and peripheral activities that are specific to the art world, and which contribute to a deep questioning of the value attributed to painting and to the artist’s craft. In fact, her work tends to generate both anticipation and confusion, and nullifies the usual analytical codes inherent in the act of contemplating an artwork.
Campbell received a BFA from the University of Saskatchewan. She has exhibited her works at the Esker Foundation, Calgary; the Remai Modern, Saskatoon; the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, University of Toronto; Mercer Union, Toronto; and the Galerie de l’UQAM, Montréal. Her work is represented in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; the Remai Modern, Saskatoon; the Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina; and the MacKenzie Art Gallery, Regina.
* Due to the unique format of this month’s Art for Lunch, visitors will not be able to eat their lunch during the presentation in the gallery. Please come earlier or stay later to enjoy a meal at the Gallery Café.
