s bill burns- dogs, boats and airplanes

Thursday April 12 - Saturday May 19, 2012.
Opening Thursday April 12

Michael Davidson is a painter living and working in Toronto. He graduated from the semi-infamous University of Guelph's Visual Arts program with a BFA in 1988 under the tutelage of Tony Scherman and Suzy Lake. His Curriculum Vitae is linked here. In the last twenty years of exhibiting, his painting work has become more increasingly concerned with the trajectory of late modernism and painting as a pure medium in the sense that we discuss such things in the work of Robert Ryman or, say, Barnett Newman. They are paintings outside of fashions in the world of contemporary art, which is to say - they exist to be judged only in the light of their own internal logic and not be considered 'abstract'.  They are indeed strongly representational – though not in the usual sense of the word.
