JG Mair: Utopian Dystopia
Exhibition Opening: September 17 @ 7:30pm
Exhibition Date: September 10 - October 24, 2015
Mixed media artist Jeff Mair combines elements of painting, installation and sculpture. Difficult to categorize yet immediately recognizable, his work employs conceptually related elements to achieve multi-dimensional form and meaning. His solo exhibition "Utopian Dystopia" runs from September 10 until October 24 at Robert Lynds Gallery in Vancouver B.C. Opening reception September 17, 7:30PM.
This, his second solo exhibition at RLG, marks an evolution of the artist's interest in themes of control and the management of information, data and resources. Mair presents a minimalistic but sweeping survey of seemingly familiar objects and materials such as shredded documents, painting substrata and vessels. Upon further scrutiny however, things are not as straightforward as they appear. Beneath the surface lies a disquieting and often darkly humorous undertow that invites perceptual reflection while simultaneously calling into question the valuation of the rarified art object itself.
Mair lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia and has exhibited in Canada, the United States and Japan.
