Blatherwick Maximum Sun
David Blatherwick: Maximum Sun
January 24 – March 17, 2013
Opening Reception – Thursday January 24, at 7:30 pm
Curated by Phil Irish
Marking a new direction in David Blatherwick’s work, Maximum Sun explores a line of inquiry initiated in the Dominican Republic, a second home for the artist and his family. In the Dominican, crops thrive under a forest canopy that shades them from the tropical sun; in neighbouring Haiti, blighted by deforestation, many crops burn to a crisp. In Maximum Sun, two images of the solar surface lead to a collection of spare abstractions.
