Description

The Shadow of the Sun: Ross Bleckner and Zachari Logan pairs New York-based painter Ross Bleckner with Regina-based Zachari Logan to remarkable effect. The artists share a sensibility in artmaking that make for a powerful concert of ideas, forms, and materials. 

On the surface it may appear that Bleckner and Logan have developed oeuvres that are stylistically disparate. The visual references of style are only part of the picture, however. On a deeper level, the exhibition proposes aesthetic links that underpin each artist’s work. They are the means to create a context of understanding for shared notions of visibility/invisibility, sexuality, selfhood, contemporary landscapes, transcendence, the fragility of love and the omnipresence of sickness and death. On closer examination, both artists share an appetite for representing societal and personal melancholy, reverential beauty, and hint at the many obtuse corporeal sites of erotic pleasure.

First Edition Hardcover printed on the occasion of the exhibition,  The Shadow of the Sun: Ross Bleckner & Zachari Logan. Co-curated by Wayne Baerwaldt, Jennifer McGregor, and Leah Taylor. Organized by the Kenderdine Art Gallery/College Art Galleries, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon and Wave Hill Public Garden & Cultural Center Bronx, New York. 2020. 96 pages.  Measures 24x23.5cm.
