Richard Prince: Telling Stories (with digressions)
November 10, 2012 to January 13, 2013
Vancouver-based Richard Prince is a fascinating artist who works in three dimensions, espousing a “bricoleur” aesthetic and working method. He has been completing a group of new works for this exhibition that will be three-dimensional pieces, some on wheels. Often his works have narrative aspects, and moving parts, and seem light-hearted in tone. Upon closer looking and thinking, however, darker and deeper themes may emerge. Prince seems to ruminate, even brood, on metaphysics and the what-makes-things-tick aspect of life on our planet. He deals in both archetypes and his own wry brand of subtle humour.
The show will be accompanied by a full-length, colour catalogue with a curatorial text byLiz Wylie.
