Frank Ramirez: ENTER TIME

10 July 2009 through 9 August 2009
Opening reception Friday 10 July 2009, 6 - 9 pm
Guest curated by Jack Foster

Frank Ramirez's new photo-based works involve a unique way of seeing nature that incorporates aspects of pareidolia and the perspectives of birds and other animals.

Frank started out in neo-dada, performance, photo-art, fiction, and sonic experimentation. He moved over to music in the late 1970s, fronting the legendary rock band UJ3RK5, which included local luminaries such as Jeff Wall, Bill Gibson, Rodney Graham, Ian Wallace, and others. Frank moved to Europe in 1980, and worked at teaching, electronic music, and hosting an underground radio show featuring new and live music heard in Germany, France and Switzerland.

While on holiday at Tofino in 1991, a friend loaned him a camera to photograph natural phenomena there. The images seemed enigmatic and a little "strange" in the central European context and were compounded into tight triptychs. Further landscape works involved locations such as CadaquƩs and the Balearics in Spain.

Frank returned to Vancouver a few years ago and eventually applied his vision to the Gulf Islands and the parks of Strathcona: a new kind of landscape photography influenced by the "isms" of art history and the desire to see man as a part of nature.

On Surplus Value is based on a deconstruction of a few pages of a text by Diedrich Diederichsen titled "On (Surplus) Value in Art." Following a strategy evolved in similar works over the past several years, I have "deconstructed" this text by literally cutting into the page and flipping the cut so that the verso of the page intersects the recto with an interference in its literary logic that is in the shape of a circle formed by the template of a wine glass. The exhibition is a demonstration "concept piece" that presents all the material elements and events of this process of ironic reversals.

Alison Yip: DRAWINGS 2002-7

February 21 2009 through March 20 2009
Opening reception Friday February 20th 6 - 9 pm
Curated by Christopher Brayshaw and Adam Harrison

Alison Yip's new exhibition records her ongoing engagement with the act of drawing. Culled from a much larger image archive, the drawings on display speak to Yip's careful observation of the world around her, the people, animals, and objects occupying it, and her sensitivity to the subtleties of dress and gesture that define her human subjects.

Alison Yip is represented by Monte Clark Gallery, Vancouver.
