"(T)o make a painting representing things as they are found in nature . . . (I) put a great deal of thought into the arrangement, but with the idea of making it look like a natural arrangement of random objects. This is an idea that I have been mulling over a great deal: giving the appearance of a total lack of artistry.”

Happy birthday to Henri Fantin-Latour born on this day in 1836

More ”Mystical”? Yes please! | AGO Art Gallery of Ontario

We are deeply saddened by the passing of artist Laurel Woodcock (1960-2017).
Two of Woodcock’s works were recently acquired by the AGO. Both of them – On a clear day (2010) and untitled (neon quotation) (2005) – are representative of her playful but unsettling explorations of how meaning is constructed.
