Join us in Toronto on Saturday, May 12 for this exhibition of never-before-seen sculptures by internationally acclaimed Saskatchewan artist Joe Fafard. Considered one of the most original Canadian artists of his generation, Fafard is perhaps best known for his sculptures of animals, however his work is also focused greatly on the human form. He has created portraits of many well-known artists considered as masters in western art history (Carr, Picasso, Rousseau, Kahlo, Rivera, Matisse, Renoir etc.) as well as Vincent Van Gogh, a re-occurring muse of Fafard’s.
The exhibition sees the return to Vincent Van Gogh as a subject paired with Fafard’s mastery of relief sculpture, his iconic farm animals and using different perspectives and distortion in creating the illusion of depth or completeness.
Prior to the exhibition opening there will be an unveiling of a new 8 ft. x 8 ft. sculpture in front of Mayberry Fine Art that will change the artistic landscape of Dundas Street West, directly across from the Art Gallery of Ontario. This will be the first figurative work of this scale that Fafard has created, and a long-awaited exhibition in Toronto since his last major retrospective exhibition in 2008.
