half & half show

var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-7668080-3’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

On Saturday, my first museum show opened at the Japanese Canadian National Museum. I did twelve paintings for the show and Robert Shiozaki constructed a sculptural meditation garden in the centre of the museum space.  The idea I had for the show was that of Japantown Reimagined, an idea of the bustling stores of Powell Street if there had been no internment and the stores were updated for today.

Here are photos of the show, if you would like to see the paintings, there are on my website at:  www.matart.ca
