Exhibit: Truth in Repetition

Friday October 17th , 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Cape Breton University Art Gallery – 1250 Grand Lake Road, Sydney
Hosted by: Cape Breton University Art Gallery
Price: Free

Brandon Manitoba artist Chris Reid conjures a world of bleak, distorted landscapes populated by cast of recurring characters. Despite their bright colours and cartoonish style Reid’s works evoke the nightmarish qualities of unsettling ambiguity and pervasive anxiety. Works in chalk pastel, soft sculpture and pysanky (Ukrainian decorated eggs) are informed by Reid’s personal and professional experiences: her small, interracial family, observations of the changing dynamics in her rural but increasingly culturally diverse community, and her role working with extremely marginalized individuals.
