Opening Reception: Saturday, Sept. 20, 1-4pm

Bradley Harms has been on the frontlines of the new wave of Canadian abstraction for several years. Harms pays close attention to the material aspect of his paintings, demonstrating a sense of technological awareness.

Harms’ practice has always utilized painting as a tool with which to address contemporary experience. When taking in one of Harms’ paintings, the viewer is subject to visual overload due to the tension between background and foreground, line and color. The overwhelming stimulus speaks to the sublime nature of the digital age. The analog application of these delicately modulated lines, intricate colour patterns, and complex systems trumps the manufactured aesthetic with the hand made. By referencing technology while not using it, the paintings become witness to the time in which they are made without relying on technology to get them there – forming a dialogue with the period, while maintaining a certain independence from it.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Bradley Harms received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Calgary in 1996 and his Masters of Fine Arts from the prestigious Art Institute of Chicago. His work has been exhibited throughout North America and Europe, and his paintings can be found in many international public collections such as the Canada Council's Artbank (Ottawa, ON), Alberta Foundation for the Arts (Edmonton, AB), the Nickle Arts Museum (Calgary, AB), University of Western Sydney (Sydney, Australia), Foreign Affairs + International Trade Canada (Ottawa, ON) and Glenbow Museum (Calgary, AB.








The gallery is pleased to present our first solo exhibition of work by Duane Michals (b. 1932) including some of the fascinating works produced during a remarkable career of almost 50 years.

Raised in his birthplace of McKeesport, PA, Michals' interest in art began at the age of 14 while attending watercolour classes at the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh. In 1953 he received a B.A. from the University of Denver. After two years in the Army, during which time he served in the Korean War, he studied at the Parsons School of Design and planned to become a graphic designer but did not complete these studies.

In 1958, while on a holiday in the USSR, he became interested in photography and eventually became a commercial photographer, after having worked as an art director and designer, completing assignments for magazines such as Vanity Fair, Esquire and Mademoiselle. Unlike others at the time who operated out of lavish studios, this self-taught photographer made environmental portraits. These portraits would become the basis of his book entitled Album. In 1970 his work was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and since that time his work has been exhibited around the world. The Carnegie Museum of Art will host a major retrospective exhibition in October of 2014.

A renowned innovator, Michals pushes the limits of photography. His early works presented images in series, at times narrated with text scrawled directly on the print, embracing each imperfection that may appear from this process. More recently, Michals has created hand-painted tintypes, modifying the images of amateur journeymen, emphasizing the “found object” quality of these images and questioning what he describes as “the museum photograph”.

His work has been exhibited widely in major institutions around the world and is found in many prestigious permanent collections. Amongst other honours, in 1993 Duane Michals was named an Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters in France.
