The Shadow of the Sun: Ross Bleckner and Zachari Logan
The Shadow of the Sun: Ross Bleckner and Zachari Logan pairs New York-based painter Ross Bleckner and Canadian artist Zachari Logan. This exhibition brings together two artists who are in different stages of their careers and have collaborated in the artmaking process over the past ten years. Though differing in mediums, processes and depictions, the abstracted imagery in Bleckner’s paintings complements the figurative representations in Logan’s drawings and sculptures—and vice versa. The artists share a sensibility in their ideas, forms, materials and motifs, including flora, fauna and human presence. At Wave Hill, the juxtaposition of Bleckner and Logan’s individual works along with their new collaborative pieces, including a large-scale, site-specific drawing for the gallery—creates a fresh context for exploring their notions of visibility/invisibility, queerness, contemporary landscape and the fragility of life.
Originally organized by the College Art Galleries at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, Canada, the exhibition has been adapted to Glyndor Gallery. It is curated by Wayne Baerwaldt, Jennifer McGregor and Leah Taylor. Zachari Logan was a Wave Hill Winter Workspace artist in 2016.
