Evan Locke Exhibition – Immediacy Protracted @ Oxygen Art Centre @ #3A
Jun 15 @ 8:00 pm – Jul 13 @ 12:00 am

 

Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to host artist Evan Locke as this summer’s Artist in Residence. Locke is an installation artist originally from New Brunswick who now resides in Victoria, BC. During his residency, Locke will construct a large-scale painting as a sculptural piece designed specifically for the Oxygen Art Centre space.

 

Evan Locke will be in residence from June 4th to June 13th. The artist will hold open studio sessions from 1-5pm on Wednesdays through Saturdays during the run of his residency. Those interested can drop in to meet the artist and watch the progression of his installation. The residency will culminate in an exhibition of this site-specific installation piece, Immediacy Protracted beginning on Saturday, June 15th and closing on Friday, July 12th. There will be an opening reception on Friday, June 14th from 7 – 9pm. Locke will give a talk about his project on Saturday, June 15th at 4pm. The gallery hours during the run of the exhibition are from 1-5pm from Wednesday through Saturday.

 

The artist states that the intention of the project is to “explore the impacts of scale and architectural spatial relationships” as they relate the tradition of painting. The physical size of the piece with approximately 400 square feet of canvas and it’s supporting wooden structural apparatus make it “visibly evident that the work cannot leave the space without being dismantled”. The artist, in exposing and inverting the physicality of painting intends the piece to function as a way to “reveal the nature of its own existence where the application of paint is wholly facilitated by the support structures themselves”.  This project extends the artist’s interest in promoting a conscious awareness of architectural space and the viewer’s presence within it.
