Cliff Eyland: Paintings and a Book
Cliff Eyland, Visiting Artist
Cliff Eyland has not shown his work in Halifax in many years. In addition to showing recent file card-sized paintings, Eyland, a Halifax-born Winnipeg resident, will also show a large loose-leaf artist's book that will contain images and references to Halifax and NSCAD.
Alexander Irving, Artist – in – Residence
The Flatmen are paintings of figures that struggle with the second dimension. The artist states, “they are ambiguous figures that evoke a sense of pathos and humour in their attempts to emerge from their shallow ground and assert themselves in our space. They are tarrying figures displaying a suspension from activity and as such propose a disnarrative, entertaining the ambiguities inherent in painting.”
Rib Gets In the Way
