The fall season at the Belkin Satellite opens with Suggestive Line, an exhibition that examines figurative drawing and its place within contemporary art. Curators Lee Plested and Scott Watson have selected eighteen artists, who explore figurative drawing using a variety of media. The exhibition presents works by some of Vancouver’s most respected contemporary artists as well as emerging local talent, including Miguel da Conceicao, Ignacio Corral, Jason Fitzpatrick, Geoffrey Farmer and Brian Jungen in collaboration, Michael Gauley, the Humanfive collective, Attila Richard Lukacs, Myfanwy MacLeod, Natasha McHardy and Judy Radul. Also included are works by Asian Punk Boy (New York), Jill Henderson and Tracy Nakayama (Brooklyn), Shary Boyle (Toronto, Los Angeles) and Luanne Martineau (Calgary, Victoria).
Figurative drawing today is less about form and more about autobiography and the politics of the psychosexual; less about contour and more about the experiences of the body. Suggestive Lineshows the variety and strength of drawing in Vancouver and beyond. In support of continued programming at the Belkin Satellite, the gallery is pleased to offer the works for sale.
