Each Painted Document (selections) – Mark Dicey

April 19, 2018 - May 18, 2018

Each Painted Document (selections) features selected works from Dicey’s earlier exhibition (Each Painted Document – February 1 – April 7, 2018).

According to Grant Poier, Each Painted Document:

is a visual manifest of the artist’s travels into and out of his workplace.

Large canvases, mid-sized works on paper, ‘Swarm’, a wall collage of ‘notations’, and a site-specific installation, all vibrant Abstract paintings, are accompanied by a suite of vitrines housing his dedicated sketch-book-works.

The exhibition sets out a representative collection of recent studio activity, with hints of the processes and interactions that feed his practice.

In celebration of Dicey’s ongoing art practice and latest body of paintings, Calgary artist Grant Poier has been commissioned to produce a (con)textual component to the Nickle exhibition. His written materials will be included in the installation, and provide content for the exhibition catalogue. A fellow collaborator and long-time observer of Dicey’s intense creative engagements, Poier responds, writing around (not about) this work which needs no words attached.
