Joe Fafard: Retailles Opening Reception


Burnaby Art Gallery
6344 Deer Lake Avenue V5G 2J3 Burnaby Canada
Internationally renowned, Joe Fafard is one of Canada’s most recognized and prolific artists. Retailles offers an insight into Fafard’s exploration of the laser-cut process featuring laser-cut and welded metal sculptures along with embossed and woodcut prints. French for scraps or trimmings, “that which is cut away”, Retailles not only references the act of removing the negative from positive space to create form, but also refers to the act of recycling these “off-cuts” to create new works. Drawing features prominently in this exhibition, from the reduction of form to line in both three-dimensional and two-dimensional spaces to the Matisse-like cut-outs and the creation of recycled, sculptural collage.
