Scott Sueme

Scott is a Canadian artist raised in Vancouver on the unceded traditional territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. He attended Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2006, and has exhibited throughout Canada, as well as internationally. Sueme’s approach to painting is rooted in an exploration of materiality — specifically, the quality and perception of colour. His hard-edge painting techniques create a subtlety of depth that not only reveals a new resonance to colour, it also draws attention to the “imperfect” process of the human hand in a way that feels both nostalgic and intimate.

The third in a series of exhibitions on Latin American modernism and its legacies, this show examines the early work of trailblazing Argentine artist Marta Minujín (b. 1943), tracing her trajectory from informalist painting and sculpture to performance.

Bernard Saby

First ran across Bernard’s work at La Galerie Les Yeux Fertiles while on vacation in Paris. There is little in English about him on the internet. According to this site (copied and pasted I to Google Translate) Bernard Saby (1925-1975) is a French painter and draftsman. After having studied musical composition in his youth with René Leibowitz, he developed a singular and suggestive abstraction, nourished not only by his research in the field of serial music, but also by his experience of drugs, mescaline or hashish in particular, or again by his in-depth study of lichens and ancient Chinese texts.

Sonia Delaunay

Sonia Delaunay was a key figure in the Parisian avant-garde of the interwar years. Born to a Jewish Ukrainian family and raised in Saint Petersburg, at the age of eighteen Delaunay enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe, Germany. In 1905 she relocated to Paris, where Post-Impressionism and Cubism were dominant in the city’s galleries. In this highly experimental climate, Delaunay and her husband Robert pioneered Simultanism, a style of abstract painting that emphasises the transcendental effects of the interaction between colours. Although like Carla she is no longer with us she is represented at Bienniale.
