Sascha Yamashita: Secret Sacred Ritual
Exhibition Opening Reception: June 2 @ 7:30pm
Exhibition date: June 2 - June 27
The Robert Lynds Gallery is pleased to present the work of Sascha Yamashita. Yamashita’s interdisciplinary solo-exhibition, Secret Sacred Ritual, explores elements of rite within his esoteric ceremonial performance in the construction and deconstruction of the art object. Yamashita transforms the gallery space into a sacrosanct domain to house his series of process-based panels, and for the witnessing of the artifact of his ceremonial practice. Examining secret societies, Yamashita’s work references various religions and sacred cults throughout history through the appropriation of symbols, and challenges the supremacy of the commodified art object.
Opening: May 7th, 2015 @7:30pm
Exhibition: May 7th - May 30th, 2015
The month of May features an exhibition of new works by Jasmine Wallace at the Robert Lynds Gallery.
Returning to Vancouver in 2010 after receiving an MFA from the University of Minnesota, Wallace began creating hybrid pieces of sculpture, painting and drawing, inspired by interests in architecture and materiality.
Forming the works by a process of amalgamation, layering and re-layering tape and paint to create a fractured surface, Wallace mirrors the act of constructing a building stage by stage until each of the preliminary stages are evident in the completed product.
Wallace's unconventional approach to sculpture and painting result in a unique physicality, with the work shadowing itself and establishing a sense of history and space.
