A selection of works from the CCAG collection including pieces by Robert Youds and Brenda Pelkey in the Fred S. and Ogden Martin Concourse Gallery.
Robert Youds, visiteur, 1998, steel, Plexiglas, aluminum, fluorescent light, vinyl, powder-coat, 182.9 x 78.7 x 25.4 cm. Gift of the artist, 2004, CAG 2004.1.3

These works of art from the Confederation Centre Art Gallery collection are linked by an interest in light, colour, surface effects, and materials. Included are a 1965 painted construction by Zbigniew Blazeje; a light-box by Hank Bull; a print on stainless steel by Sarah Gersovitz; a neon wall-work by André Fournelle; four sculptures by Robert Youds that “plug-in” and radiate coloured light; a photograph of a nightclub by Brenda Pelkey; a textile work by Helen Frances Gregor which has anodized aluminum bars woven into the hanging; and a 2010 aerial photograph by Edward Burtynsky of an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

These artworks remind us of the ongoing fascination artist’s have with colour and light in abstract as well as representational works of art in many media.

The exhibition is curated by Kevin Rice.
