Graham Peacock's painting 'Starry Night' (1987) on view at the Art Gallery of Alberta's 90 x 90: Celebrating Art in Alberta exhibition (Part One, May 17th to September 14th, 2014) 

90 x 90: Celebrating Art in Alberta is a two part exhibition that has been organized to commemorate the Art Gallery of Alberta's birthday. Inaugurated on August 17, 1924, the AGA is the oldest cultural institution in the province of Alberta and its only solely dedicated art museum.

Taking the concept of the 90th birthday as a starting point, 90 x 90 features the work of 90 Alberta artists with artworks that were produced in the AGA's life span: 1924-2014. More a celebration of Alberta art and creativity than an attempt to represent or write a history of art in the province, 90 x 90 features work in a variety of media: painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video and installation, with works by some of the province's most renowned and innovative artists.

More information about the exhibition is available here.

You can see Graham's painting 'Starry Night' - and other artworks on view in the exhibition - here.

Graham Peacock's painting Age and Romance to hang in the Canadian Embassy, Washington D.C.


Provenance

Age and Romance (above) was one of two painting shown in 1995 in a New New Painting Exhibition presented by Galerie Piltzer of Paris at the Salander-O'Reilly Galleries, New York, USA.  The work was later acquired by the Government of Canada: it has now been selected to hang at the Canadian Embassy in Washington DC.

At 77 x 79 x 3 1/2 inches, this work is the largest of the rotondo paintings of this time, and is from the ' Glitter Paintings', a group of works in which Peacock focused on using reflective pigment including glitter, metallic paints, glass and plastic beads and reflective disc pieces in his work. The work has a physical depth of 3 1/2 " with canvas undulations visible in the image above.

Age and Romance was titled for its old world character of pearls and lace such as one might see at a formal ball.  So it is perhaps fitting that it will hang in such a setting.


The 20th Anniversary Exhibition of the Edmonton Contemporary Artists' Society

I exhibited at the 2013 ECAS Exhibition at the Enterprise Square Galleries at 10230 Jasper Avenue in Edmonton.

Specifically, I exhibited Cochin and There and Back from the new Geometric works. Read an introduction to these paintings here, where there is a link to the Geometric gallery.


New Geometric paintings now online

We have recently added a gallery for my new Geometric paintings and have included a new slide show to the Features page showing how the paintings are created.

In these new works, the ‘crazing ‘ - my signature invention - is reintroduced with the smaller scale crazing of the 1980’s and we see the re-emergence of the angular stretcher. In addition, for the first time since the early 1970’s I am starting the painting by setting the shape before I pour paint.


The "Exhibition of Small Works" has now closed

However, these works remain available for viewing, includig Watercolours, Collages and Original Prints, newly framed to museum standards (prices start at $425).

Scroll down for gallery location and other information.


The watercolours consist of a selection of representational works painted over many years from, the west coast of B.C. (seascapes), Southern Italy (views of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius), and the Dominican Republic, French and Turkish subjects. All painted on site, during my travels. I have rarely shown this side of my work, as it has not been my preoccupation, but I regularly worked with students in wash techniques and taught classes in watercolour for the U of A Spring Session, on the Sorrento peninsula of Italy in 2006, 2007 and  2008. These watercolours reflect my beginnings as painter, in my teens, inspired by Turner and Constable, painting on holidays with my parents in Devon, England. Then I went to art school and began my journey towards abstraction.

Also I have completed a new group of abstract rectangular 'Painted Canvas Collages', Miniatures 8 x 6 ,14 x 11, and a few 24 x 20, 40 x 30 and 48 x 60  inches. These collages combine pre-painted off cuts stripes with painted bands in vertical compositions, which are for me unique colour and surface sketches. I often make groups of these based on my travels, inspired by the colours and textures of differing environments and cultures.

I have also framed a small group of Linoleum Mono Prints, 'The Pamukkali Suite', printed in Denizli, Turkey , made during an artists workshop at Pamukkali University in 2010. These prints are based on my early 'crazed' paintings begun in 1982, and are printed on the finest French rag papers with Charbonnel inks. I made four plates,each print being inked uniquely making a mono print, only one of  each colour and composition.
