Joane CardinalSchubert: at the centre of her circle BY JENNIFER MacLEOD EDITOR, GALLERIES WEST

J

oane Cardinal-Schubert is a story-teller. In conversation, in writing, in the way she approaches her work. Ask a question and you’ll hear an anecdote. Mention an issue, and you’ll hear about an experience. Questions about why are answered with what happened. Joane's paintings and installations are visual stories of personal experiences layered on a backdrop of social and historical events. She weaves bold Aboriginal motifs into colourful statements about subjects that touch her. Inspired by her open writing style, I invited Joane to collaborate on a progressive profile via email. Rather than relying on the usual formal interview, I suggested this format could be a kind of performance art for writing. True to character, she was game to try, even though she was busy setting up an installation at the Art Gallery of Calgary as part of its 25th anniversary exhibition entitled 5° (Five Degrees).That's where we began. Subject: POLITICAL ART To: editor@gallerieswest.ca From: joane cardinal-schubert My installation is entitled 'Media'ate'. Two red walls....4 ft. wide b & w checkerboard floor, (the floor of oppression/power) strewn with ashes, rebar and burned computer discs. Red dove made out of modelling clay high on wall above two plinths (painted red). Text on wall "Post Modernism - 911".....original idea - chalk, but am now considering black oil. The left plinth has a brass hand bell. (Brit) ....poking out from under the bell is a small British flag and a Canadian flag.... on the other pedestal sits a world globe. The pedestals sit on an American flag, 10 ft long, in disarray. On the adjacent wall is a painting......soup can, 'Cardinal's condensed Feral Soup'... (wild horse) ( smile). On the floor sits an ordinary wooden chair painted red.... I am trying to discourage myself from placing my black top hat pierced with a red arrow on the seat.....Do you think I am very wicked? Subject: political art To: joane cardinal-schubert From: editor@gallerieswest.ca I think it's hard to say your work isn't political! Subject: political art To: editor@gallerieswest.ca From: joane cardinal-schubert I started on this road to paint about my personal experiences…. but because I’m Aboriginal, my work has been considered political. I don’t think of it as political… I think of it as personal. 10 Galleries West Spring 2003

Subject: STRATEGY To: joane cardinal-schubert From: editor@gallerieswest.ca But your art is triggered by political events and circumstances. And you have sought to make a difference in those circumstances through your art. You talk about a ‘strategy.’ Subject: strategy To: editor@gallerieswest.ca From: joane cardinal-schubert I am sick to death of articles re Aboriginal People..... and the nega- ABOVE: Media'ate is part of the 5° tives. That is why I exhibit on view at the Art Gallery of became involved with the Calgary until January 26. Calgary Aboriginal Arts Awareness Society over 14 Recent works by Joane Cardinalyears ago - to help celSchubert shown here include: below, ebrate the positives of Aboriginal People through Family Birthright II, acrylic on paper, art. That is really what 31" x 11"; right, In the Garden, acrylic my own life experience on canvas, 44" x 44". directed me to do... I wanted to discuss visually the very sophisticated Aboriginal culture - that was my strategy. I told you about the dean who refused to let me in to the University of Alberta after I had presented a portfolio and was placed in 3rd year. I required the Dean’s signature..... but when I met with him he enquired as to my name, pointed at me and said ‘You get out of here.... and don’t you ever come back.’ All I could think of at the time was that Deans are not supposed to act this way. I painted, had two children and I waited five years until that Dean retired and went right to the University and registered. Part of my drive and stamina comes from experiences like these, and those I see happening to others. I like turning over rocks to see what is under them..... moving carcases, turning them over, seeing what they are helping create. I am driven by not understanding how people have all this power. I pour in all those experiences, the good with the bad, and within the composition, their energies are transformed into beauty and a new truth. So you might say my art heals me. I was taught to believe that there is always something good to be found in bad. I would say part of my art is triggered by political events as political events affect us and change our lives. Perhaps they have a more noticeable effect on an artist.


COURTESY ART GALLERY OF CALGARY

Subject: INTERPRETATIONS To: joane cardinal-schubert From: editor@gallerieswest.ca I see constant movement in your work. A continuous march of history, of events. I feel, at once, a sense of urgency and a sense of hope when I look at many of your paintings. But I’m never sure I’m getting it. You’re speaking a language of your own. Subject: interpretations To: editor@gallerieswest.ca From: joane cardinal-schubert It appears you are getting it - if you have an emotional response like this one. My painting exists on many levels. It has to be beautiful so as not to alienate, but I want to engage the intellect too. Allow the viewer room to make a choice. I am simply creating a mirror for them to look into. They see what they want to see and therefore they have a part in the process. I know that I really don't have any control over how they interpret my work. I believe each artist develops a language of personal visual symbology. An artist’s work is really composed of visual sentences or paragraphs or essays threaded together. The most interesting part of this for me is when I hear comments like yours, when I hear that the message is getting through, that I am communicating on that level. Subject: ARTISTIC PROCESS To: joane cardinal-schubert From: editor@gallerieswest.ca You talk of being a visual interpretor who cannot, as an artist, turn a blind eye. When do you make the decision to commit to the canvas? Subject: artistic process To: editor@gallerieswest.ca From: joane cardinal-schubert Sometimes I create a series of works that have as their final impetus a fallen leaf, the colour of the sky, a raindrop hitting my face, the sound of snow underfoot or a laugh... that stimulates or triggers a collected memory and serves to produce a conceptual image on my retina. At these points I am eager to get to the studio and see if I can create it as I visualize it. I always have some idea of my goal, but at some point the process takes over and I am directed by it. This makes my passion even more intense to go on the journey of discovery.

PAINTINGS COURTESY MASTERS GALLERY

Subject: VISUAL STORIES To: joane cardinal-schubert From: editor@gallerieswest.ca Have the stories that you tell changed with time? Something you said about existing within a circle suggests you don’t see your career as a linear progression. Subject: visual stories To: editor@gallerieswest.ca From: joane cardinal-schubert Most stories are very linear, with a beginning, a mid-point and an end. Storytelling was introduced to me as a parallel example of problem solving. Stories were not directives but provided a space for personal resolve. This is similar to what an art work achieves. What I said was that I exist at the center of a big circle. My ‘stories’ are circular, the end and the beginning linked….referenced ...and I can cross over the circle and spin off into little circles rediscovering aspects I have missed or that remained undeveloped in previous works. Sometimes I cross that circle as a challenge to rediscover, to find out what I missed at first glance. Right now my work is all about family and the world we live in – obviously a response to the times. Subject: BEING CATEGORIZED To: joane cardinal-schubert From: editor@gallerieswest.ca You've always resisted being categorized. Early

on, you said no to doing what was expected of you... doing "Native" art, or "political" art... Subject: being categorized To: editor@gallerieswest.ca From: joane cardinal-schubert Early on… at 19… I began to see that I was expected to do a certain kind of thing - I supposed I was to do Native art. I had a difficult time realizing I was categorized by my personal expressions. The categorization of Native Art was attached to my work and others’ works by non-Native curators. Even though I had written the same exams in University and fulfilled all the requirements of a degree..... when I got out of school my content which was largely about myself, who I was, my responses to the world etc....was labelled as Native Art and then political art - they seemed to go together. Later when Native Curators came on the scene, and called the work Native art - that was different. We were declaring who we were, not being told by others. The political was not separate there was no label. Subject: FREE THINKING To: joane cardinal-schubert From: editor@gallerieswest.ca Your parents were living examples to you and your siblings of not fearing change, of going beyond barriers. They encouraged “free thinking.” That has been a huge part of who you are as an artist. Subject: free thinking To: editor@gallerieswest.ca From: joane cardinal-schubert Yes my parents were amazing. One could call it 'free thinking', but for us, it was the way we were - We loved to laugh, to have fun, to discuss, and debate. Our voices were important, our curiousities were encouraged. My parents taught us to look at each day as a new beginning. That tomorrow is a new day - I hold this belief close - it has served me well. No recriminations, just belief that things change, things get better and I have a part to play in that - I take the responsibility seriously.

One form of digital art that is rapidly gaining attention among artists and consumers is giclée. A giclée (pronounced jee-clay) is an image that has been digitally printed onto a conventional fine art support such as watercolour paper or canvas. Its extraordinary precision and resolution is made possible by the use of sophisticated and very expensive wide-format inkjet printers that can output a continuous stream of ink, propelling about four million microscopic squirts of dye per second from tiny nozzles the size of a follicle of hair. This results in a staggeringly wide gamut of up to 16 million colours. The giclée image is impressive in its depth, resolution and colour. Its surface texture is smooth and consistent. But as the popularity of such computerbased art making grows, so does the Home from School, 2002, giclée on debate over questions canvas, edition of 250 numbered of originality and prints, 20" x 24". A reproduction authenticity. giclée by Terry Ananny, at Art Mode Gallery. GICLÉES AS REPRODUCTIONS The most common manifestation of the giclée is as a reproduction, issued in limited editions. In this case, the giclée is a copy, albeit of stunning verisimilitude, but a copy nonetheless. The original work is always in another medium, say oil or acrylic on canvas, which is converted into a digital format. Next, the colours are meticulously calibrated to match the original, and then printed onto canvas. A giclée reproduction is significantly and qualitatively different from mass-produced reproductions like those of Robert Bateman, which are issued by the tens of thousands and are photo-mechanically created copies of an original painting. It is

The tell-tale tiny dots, the double signatures and the huge editions all render meaningless their accompanying “Certificates of Authenticity.” These are posters. They have no intrinsic value as artworks. By comparison, a higher quality reproduction giclée on canvas is issued in editions that are limited to a few hundred copies at most. Nevertheless, the “Certificate of Authenticity” that comes with a giclée does not validate it “I think giclée is strictly reproduction as an original—it is if it is imitating fine art. To my mind, still a copy. giclée is definitely not a printmaking One type of technique. Printmakers physically reproduction, called a canvas transfer, make their own prints. At each phase, superficially there is human involvement. resembles the Printmaking is labour-intensive and giclée.

OPINION


There is nothing intrinsically wrong with the idea of a reproduction and indeed it can bring the work of an artist into the homes and offices of many people who could never afford to buy the original work. A framed giclée reproduction looks great and it comes at a fraction of the cost of the original that it so uncannily mimics. Christopher Talbot, owner of Mixed Emotions, a Calgary gallery that specializes in giclées, says, “I am trying to put art into people’s hands at prices that make sense.” In this gallery, all reproduction giclées are done from original works of art by Canadian and Australian artists. This ensures much better quality than, for example, a giclée done after a reproduction, which is a copy of a copy. GICLÉES AS ORIGINAL FINE ART A giclée can be considered original fine art, comparable to printmaking, when it contributes a new image to the world. In this case, the image originates not as a separate physical entity such as an oil painting that is copied, but as a digital file. The creation of the image is intricately and irrevocably enmeshed in the computer which is a tool for the artist, an enabler of conceptualization. For example, in a photographically based giclée, the slide or print is the start, not the end of the creative process in which the original photograph is manipulated and altered within the computer in software programs such as Photoshop. Whatever its source, in nature or in the imagination of the artist, the art is conceived, gestated and born through the computer. The final image is actualized, given physical form, through the use of an inkjet printer, output as a digital print on paper or as a giclée on canvas. GICLÉES AND FINE ART PRINTS A giclée can be a one-of-a-kind, unique image or created in multiples which are issued,

like fine art prints, in limited editions. However, there are significant distinctions between giclées and traditional fine art printmaking, such as etching, lithography and silkscreen to name only a few. The most noteworthy difference is that a giclée is produced by a computer, whereas all fine art prints are handmade: it is usually the artist (often with an artist/technician) who works the plate or litho stone; who manually applies the ink to its surface; and who puts the paper through the press. Each colour in a fine art print is applied separately and the process is repeated as many times as there are colours in the print, whereas all the colours in a giclée are squirted out of the inkjet printer at the same time. Some artists, like Walter Jule, also combine different printmaking techniques in a single image. This means that

Walter Jule:

visual jazz BY MONIQUE WESTRA What attracted you to printmaking? Well, looking back, I can see that printmaking allowed me to utilize the conceptual thinking I’d explored in my undergraduate degree, which was in architecture and interior design. There was a teacher at university who introduced me to certain ideas and attitudes that were influencing artists in the early 1960s. I loved the fact that in printmaking disparate elements could be brought together through a technical process—a weaving together of the spontaneous and deliberate. It’s like jazz: each has an element of craft and improvisation. In your writing, you used the analogy of music to describe printmaking. In Sightlines: Printmaking and Image Culture, 1997, you wrote, “…Listen carefully to music and you will hear the individual notes build together until the whole no longer resembles the parts…Sometimes I like to think that the art of making prints is not unlike that of making music.There is an artist, an engraving plate and tools.The finished product—the print—is the result of how those elements are brought together.” Can you say more about this idea? I was thinking about how discipline, technical skill and spontaneity all come together in printmaking. The best jazz musicians have a command of their instruments, but technique isn’t the point, it’s the confidence that allows dexterity, spontaneity and freedom. Visual artists can learn a lot from musicians and actors, who are very aware of the need to integrate the head, heart and hands. There is a difference between printmakers who create multiples of a single image with fairly predictable outcomes and artists like yourself whose prints are the final outcome of a complex process of layering and synthesis, which incorporates many steps, combines different print techniques, and adds an 16 Galleries West Spring 2003

alter Jule was born in Seattle and has lived in Alberta since 1970.

He is the recipient of 10 national awards and seven international awards for his outstanding work. His contribution to printmaking extends well beyond his own art. As an educator, Jule has taught and lectured widely, in the US, Japan and Brazil. For the past 30 years, he has been a professor of fine art at the University of Alberta, where he is currently head of the Printmaking Division, one of the most dynamic research and studio facilities in the country. Jule has also organized international conferences, curated major exhibitions and edited several books about contemporary printmaking. He is represented by Image 54 in Calgary and Gallery Jin in Tokyo.

element of chance.This creates strikingly original images that could not be achieved in any other medium. Can you share with us your creative process as a printmaker? Recently I’ve been making paper collages and wetting the paper that has been attached at points to my studio wall. When the paper dries it shrinks, and slowly all these tensioned structures begin to emerge. I manipulate the wet paper by hand while it’s drying and can influence the configuration of the wrinkles to a certain degree. While this is going on, I’m watching for something unexpected and taking photographs, changing the lights around madly. It’s kind of passive and frantic at the same time. I select photographs to enlarge and transfer to copper etching plates, which I then work by hand, adding and subtracting until I find a kind of open-ended quality. Then I edition the etching on Japanese Gampi Washi (paper) and paste each impression to a backing sheet. At this point additional images, stones, balloons and various stains and drips are added with lithography to punctuate or “riff” off the structures formed by the image of stretched paper. All this technical process is a way for me to become more intimate with ideas about light, transience, cause and effect, what is predicted and what is recognized and, hopefully, through the invention of symbolic structures, produce work that encourages specific psychological states.


Can you discuss some of the ideas that you express metaphorically in your art? Well, I am not so much interested in illustrating an idea than I am in the ability of art to resolve what the mind cannot resolve. I mean that art can make me aware of an ever-present stillness underneath the activity of my life. I would like the somewhat dramatic forms in my work to be seen as essentially empty—a zone where there is no activity of the mind. I also address notions of memory, loss, and erosion, but most importantly I’d like my work to be an example of a kind of breakdown of sequential time, concentrated into the present moment. Your life is certainly very busy. How do you balance your role as teacher with your own art practice? I find creative exchange, working with others toward the goal of improvement of both individuals and the group, exhilarating. I’ve had a bunch of absolutely brilliant graduate students over the years and observing an artist develop, easily or at times with great difficulty, is the best seat in town. When I’m in my studio, I’m in my studio and when I’m teaching there is just that. Maybe it’s a kind of cross training and sometimes one tugs while the other pulls, but that’s the exercise.

The Printmaking Division at U of A is very highly regarded nationally and internationally.What is it about this program that sets it apart from other similar programs in Canada? I believe it is because of a large group of exceptional teachers and technicians that has been able to work together as a team, and an administration that has provided ongoing support on many fronts. Paradoxically, I think our geographical and cultural isolation has served to prod us into looking seriously at the printmaking traditions of Europe and Asia and we’ve developed an active artists-residency program, enriching our situation immeasurably. You mention Asia and Europe. How is printmaking regarded in the world today? Printmaking is experiencing a worldwide explosion of interest. There are over 40 international print biennials or triennials scattered around the world drawing audiences in the tens of thousands. Canada has two, in Trois Rivières and Edmonton. Printmaking is both highly successful and under-appreciated.

So how do you feel about printmaking as a collectible medium? There is such a diversity of prints now and Canadian artists are having a real impact on the international stage. It seems to be that collectors should be rushing to take advantage of the relatively low prices. We have a very short print tradition in this country though, compared to Europe or a country like Japan, and I hope critics will continue to write about good and interesting work and galleries will help the public understand the vitality of printmaking now. What do you see in the immediate future for printmaking? The immediate future of printmaking on a technological level will be the exploration of the integration of digital technology with the complex vocabularies and processes already at hand.

he popular press has made much of the fact that John Snow established himself as an artist in Western Canada while simultaneously pursuing a successful career in banking. “A banker who dabbles in printmaking,” snorted the Calgary Herald in 1984. But Snow shrugged off the slight. “Everybody can do more than one thing well,” he said. “People tend to be too one-sided today.” Given his achievements, one could hardly accuse Snow of being “one-sided.” Renaissance man would be more like it. This questing artistic soul has made his mark not only in banking and art but also in music, film and theatre. He discovered artmaking at a young age. Two artistically talented aunts showed him how to paint in watercolours when he was a child in England during the First World War. He continued to paint after his family returned to Canada in 1919. He also studied cello and violin. In 1921, when John was 10, the family settled on a farm west of Innisfail, Alberta. Five years later he told his father he wanted “to be a painter or a banker.” The banking came first. In 1929, at age 17, Snow began what would be a 43-year career with the Royal Bank. “It’s so very hard for an artist to make a living painting, especially at first,” he said years later. “I didn’t have to. I was making loans during the daytime and was delighted to come home at night and put some colour on a sheet of paper.” After service overseas as an air force navigator during the Second World War, Snow returned to Canada, to Calgary, and made a conscious decision to “do art seriously.” He joined a life drawing group at Coste House, a community art centre, and studied drawing with Maxwell Bates at what is now the Alberta

College of Art and Design. “Bates was a wonderful teacher,” said Snow. “That’s how I really got started.” Perhaps the most important journey of Snow’s life as an artist occurred in 1953 when he visited Glen Alps, a noted Seattle print artist, who told Snow he should try lithography, a surface printing technique that depends on the fact that grease and water do not mix. “The medium would suit you,” said Alps. Snow returned to Calgary, purchased for $15 two old lithography presses that Western Printing and Lithography had dumped in a back alley, moved the presses into his basement and, with the help of his friend and teacher Bates, taught himself how to make colour lithographs. Working with greasy paint or chalk on limestone slabs, he produced hundreds of limited-edition prints. His subjects

included figures, still lifes and landscapes, variously described by critics as moody, rich-hued and venturesome. In the 1960s, while still making lithographs, Snow started doing landscapes in oils, and decided that he could achieve richer colours with lithography. He also started making sculptures and broadened his range further by designing and building stage sets for a Calgary theatre company. Additionally, Snow was active with the Calgary Film Society, an organization he had helped found in 1946. Snow retired from the Royal Bank in early 1972, at age 60, after having worked up to assistant manager with the bank’s main branch in Calgary. From then on he worked full time on artistic projects, which now included hooking rugs and making short films. In 1982 Snow and his wife Kathleen founded New Works Calgary Society, an organization dedicated to commissioning and presenting works by Calgary composers. He continued to design stage sets and costumes for plays, and showed his prints in galleries around the world. In 1984 Snow received both an honorary doctorate from the University of Calgary, and the Alberta Achievement Award from the provincial government. Those distinctions, says Canmore art dealer Doug Maclean, showed that Snow was then being recognized as the finest in his field: “I call him, without any hesitation, Canada’s best and most important lithographer.” In 1989 the Edmonton Art Gallery opened a retrospective exhibition of 100 works from Snow’s four-decade career as an artist.

his home put him in the hospital for three months. This reverse was followed in 1995 by the death from cancer of Kathleen, his wife of 31 years — “marvellous Kay,” as he called her. She was a writer who wrote an acclaimed biography of Maxwell Bates, among other books,. Snow married her nine years after the 1954 death of his first wife, Bula Mae. “They were an ideal pair, John and Kay,” says John Vance Snow. “They complemented one another so well.” In 1996 Snow became the first—and to date only—artist to receive the Alberta Order of Excellence. “Alberta is now regarded internationally as a printmaking centre, in large part due to the pioneering work of Dr. Snow,” said the government citation. Snow received the honour with characteristic modesty. “It’s a wonderful way to spend some quiet time,” he said. “And it keeps me interested.” Snow spent three months in the hospital with pneumonia in 2000, after which he moved to a Calgary retirement home ABOVE: September, 1974 where he now lives at age 91. lithograph on paper LEFT: Prairie Fields, 1982, lithograph on paper

Leslie Poole: LESLIE POOLE Velazquez In his spring exhibition, Now and Then: Subverted, 2001, Revisiting the Present, Leslie Poole blends acrylic on canvas, still life with figurative painting and 60" x 40" glimpses of landscape. Portraying isolated moments set within the hallways and rooms of his Vancouver home, and pairing new works with earlier pieces dating as far back as 1976, the show is a reversal of postmodernism. “Instead of revisiting the past in terms of the present, I find it interesting to be revisiting the present in terms of the past,” says Poole. Many of his realist paintings pay visual homage to historic works by such painters as Bonnard and Velazquez, and explore attitudes and impressions regarding gender and power, sensuality and sexuality. Poole’s work has been diverse over his 30-year career, moving from realism to expressionism. In recent years, he has gravitated back to photo-realism. A keen observer of light, the artist deftly balances light and shadow, geometric forms with organic shapes, representations of intellect with

of non-Native influences on Native people, the land and the spirit world. More recently, Boyer has chosen to focus, primarily through oil on canvas, on the persistence of Aboriginal cultures and spirituality around the world. “Despite the struggles within our communities, we have maintained our belief in ourselves,” says Boyer. “Our beliefs are strong, the languages have survived... and our moral support for each other is beautiful.” A solo show of Boyer’s work will be held March 15 to April 9 at Assiniboia Gallery in Regina, 306-522-0997. Boyer is also represented by TrepanierBaer Gallery in Calgary, 403-244-2066. (JCMac)

translucent white vellum. Her images are exaggerated, impossibly thin renderings that distort stereotypes of female beauty with the tension of an elastic band stretched to its limits. Beneath the beauty of these iconographic images is a long history of exploitation and merchandising of the female form. Daley’s recent drawings of glamourous gowns, inspired by images in high-fashion magazines, were mostly uninhabited by a body, yet they wittily embodied ideals of femininity. In her new collection, Daley depicts animated female legs and stilettoed feet, posing, twirling, standing, swanning, sprawling. Critic Renee Baert notes that the appeal of Daley’s images is counterbalanced by resistance to their allure. “This ambivalence finds an echo within feminist thought, between its forceful critique of the fashion industry and the recognition of fashion as an object of pleasure, an embodiment of fantasy and a vehicle of play.” A show of Daley’s work is at Calgary’s Newzones Gallery in March 2003, call 403266-1972.

the pattern and texture of fences, reflective puddles, and so much more. Moore paints her subjects on location. On any but the coldest winter days, you might find her strategically parked, paints spread out on the driver’s seat, canvas propped against her steering wheel. For larger canvases, she works from a photograph, but Moore much prefers the location work. “Those pieces tend to be more spontaneous, and I am much more observant when I’m painting on location.” Plus, she notes, it’s really quite peaceful. “In this violent, hectic and fast-paced life, there is great beauty, intimacy and peace within our grasp,” says the artist. A solo show of Joanna Moore’s work is set for late spring at the Front Gallery in Edmonton, call 780-488-2952. (JCMac)

Susan Unger: Contours, 2002, acrylic on panel, 16" x 24"

The Saskatchewan praire is the context for Susan Unger’s acrylic paintings, particularly the landscapes and farms around Lampman where the artist grew up. In every painting, the figures are the animals who inhabit that landscape, the sheep, cows, pigs and chickens Unger refers to as the “silent community” that is so much a part of the culture of rural Saskatchewan. Unger’s animals are portrayed with obvious affection. “I am inspired by the inherent characteristics of these animals—their shapes, colours, textures and movements,” says Unger. She does not try to depict photo-realistic detail, but prefers to convey an impression of the animals, their relationships with each other, the ways in which they fit together to form units, and how their forms become one with the land. A solo show of new works by Susan Unger runs April 4 to 26 at the McIntyre Gallery in Regina, 306-757-4323. (JCMac)

Jim Logan now lives in Ottawa following several years in Nova Scotia, but his show this spring at Bearclaw Gallery marks a return to his Yukon community paintings, says gallery owner Jackie Bugera. “We haven’t seen these scenes for a few years,” she says, but they are the same type of scenes that Logan started with based on his experiences as a lay minister on a northern Native reserve. The artist uses a bright and colourful naïve style to portray life on the reserve, including its unhappy social problems—what he calls the “quiet condition.” “I portray both


MARK C. MULLIN Mark Mullin is quite happy to puzzle himself with perceptual dilemmas. He translates onto canvas those points at which water meets sky, matter meets light, and gas meets matter. His oil paintings are an investigation of the space that surrounds us, in an attempt to “give form to things that are formless.” Inspired more by chaos theory than art theory, Mullin uses paint as a “skin of frozen arrested light” to create paintings that interpret matter and dimension. Susan Almrud, owner of Vancouver’s State Jim Logan: sadness and happiness,” explains Logan. “It is not my goal to show only one side The Evening News, 2001, acrylic on masonite, of life but to show how much we are 18" x 24" alike and how much we differ.” In recent years Logan has experimented with collage and computer art, and has explored comparisons between European and Aboriginal art history. Logan’s show, entitled Twenty-Four Songs, runs April 26 to May 8 at Bearclaw Gallery in Edmonton, 780-482-1204. (JCMac)

Mark C Mullin: Lumen 3, 2002, oil on canvas, 30 cm x 30 cm Gallery, says she was “completely drawn to the physical, almost sculptural element” of Mullin’s work. Mark Mullin will show his personal expressions of the metaphysical March 12 to April 5 at the State Gallery, upper floor, 1564 West 6th Avenue, Vancouver, 604-632-0198. His work is also carried at TrepanierBaer Gallery in Calgary, 403-244-2066. (SH)

JULIE DUSCHENES

Kensington Fine Art Gallery

Although landscapes and still-lifes are traditionally unlinked genres in artmaking, Julie Duschenes combines images of telephone receivers, bowls and plates with images of the coulees around Lethbridge to suggest that while language constructs our identity, Julie Duschenes: so too does landscape. The bowls and Sounding Bowls, 2001, telephone receivers float above the etching, 22" x 22" landscape to develop an ironic vocabulary of images that are both an evocative memento mori and a subtle affirmation of life. Having lived in Lethbridge for many years, Duschenes is hugely influenced by the vivid, expressive coulees that cut through the city. She teaches printmaking at The University of Lethbridge and has shown at many major galleries throughout North America. The current retrospective of her work features watercolours, monoprints, acrylics on cotton, and oil paintings produced since 1992. Her work is on exhibition until early January at the Monkey Girl Ceramic Company, Lethbridge, 403-317-3137. (SVS)

GOLDEN BOY Manitoba's best-known symbol, Golden Boy clutches a torch and sheaf of wheat high atop the domed Legislative Building in Winnipeg.The four-metre-high figure was sculpted by Charles Gardet of Paris and cast in 1918 by the Barbidienne foundry in France. Following a $1 million refurbishing last year, the statue was re-dedicated in October by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II during her Golden Jubilee visit to Canada.The beloved artwork has a special place in the hearts of Manitobans – more than 140,000 people visited Golden Boy when it was on display prior to its makeover.

Henry Kalen graduated in architecture but after three years of practice decided to specialize in architectural photography. In 1982 the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada awarded him the Allied Arts Medal. More recently he was accepted for membership in the Royal Canadian Academy. His current book, Henry Kalen’s Winnipeg, features a photo of Golden Boy on the cover. The book has been listed on McNally Robinson's best-seller list every week since September 2000. This image was taken with a Nikon F3HP camera mounted on a Manfrotto tripod. Kalen used a Sigma 170 - 500 mm lens with no filter. The film was Ektachrome E100VS.
