Curiouser & Curiouser at Alix Art Gallery

7 February-11 May 2014

“Curiouser & Curiouser” is based on the delightful and somewhat whimsical artwork of Petrolia, Ontario-based artist Norman Barney, offering visitors a journey into the wonderfully bizarre world of the imagination.

Barney, along with other likeminded artists including Jorden and David Doody, Dagmara Genda, Karine Giboulo, Catherine Heard, James Kirkpatrick, Ron Noganosh and Chris Stones, take delight in transforming found and recycled objects, creating works that are visually engaging and entertaining while at the same time examine some of society’s most complex and urgent social issues.

“Curiouser & Curiouser offers an opportunity to experience art work by eight emerging artists from across Canada, all working in their own unique way with assemblage, collage and found objects,” says Curator Lisa Daniels. “Centered on the work of Petrolia artist Norman Barney, the exhibition will challenge your fixed perceptions about what art can be and how it can function in the world.”
