Having welcomed in the new year and now settling into the winter months we have put together a selection of works that celebrate moments of insight, pleasure and warmth.
Greg Curnoe’s passion for cycling, racing and collecting/building bikes was often represented in his paintings. In this joyful work the horn marks the beginning of a friendly race.
Lawrence Weiner is well known for his fine multiples in various media. In this work he juxtaposes the positive text with the rough sandpaper support.
William Kurelek prized his tools: framing, painting, building, and in this case a plasterers pink trowel -his pleasure in the essence of the tool.
A box of greens, a cat on patrol, a moment in the day, caught by Mary Pratt in this fine early, original stone lithograph.
Kim Adams was asked to create a fishing hut as part of the art installation project, Ice Follies, for the White Water gallery, North Bay, Ontario, in 2004. This is one of the spirited preparatory sketches for the sculpture, Minnow Lure, now in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada.
