Vancouver-based artist Brent Wadden, whose works have been auctioned at Christie's, is currently showing his internationally acclaimed textile works in a solo exhibit at Vancouver's Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG). Entitled Two Scores and presented across both the adjoining B.C. Binning and Alvin Balkind galleries, the exhibit features two intensely coloured, oversize weavings which dominate the floor and wall, as well as an array of smaller textiles.
Wadden started out as a painter but in 2011 began exploring with woven art. While his pieces are created using traditional methods, on a loom, Wadden intentionally refers to his works as 'paintings,' the purpose of which is to "antagonize the highly gendered histories of both painting and textiles," explains the CAG website. Two Scores is on until March 25, 2018 at the Contemporary Art Gallery in Yaletown.
