Description

Join Saskatoon-based artist Tammi Campbell for a tour of her solo exhibition, ‘Double Remove’ on view at the MacLaren beginning March 21. Campbell’s art practice engages with the traditions of Modernist and Minimalist painting by referring, either explicitly or implicitly, to the legacies of Agnes Martin, Frank Stella or Sol LeWitt. She humorously probes the specificity of her medium and the fetishism of the creative process through paintings made in the style of trompe l’œil, but which appear to remain unfinished. Her “in progress” and “unfinished” aesthetic draws upon various materials and peripheral activities that are specific to the art world, and which contribute to a deep questioning of the value attributed to painting and to the artist’s craft. In fact, her work tends to generate both anticipation and confusion, and nullifies the usual analytical codes inherent in the act of contemplating an artwork.
