June - October 2009
"Growing up on the prairies and traveling them endlessly, I have always had a powerful attachment to their vast beauty and the icons that inhabit them. A sun-drenched canola field against a breezy afternoon summer sky or a row of silos standing patiently in an open field resonates with me as truly sublime. The feeling can be overwhelming in its vast simplicity. These feelings and ideas are largely what inform my current work."

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth."
Untitled Art Society (UAS) is pleased to present The Self Portrait Show, bringing together the work of thirteen artists working in the esteemed tradition of the self-portrait. This show of local emerging, mid-career, and established artists promises to be an eclectic examination of the tradition; with the work ranging from traditional to experimental, serious to tongue-in-cheek.
