Description: EDWARD HILLELSTAIRCASES, black and white photograph; signed, numbered 7/25 12 ins x 18.5 ins; 30.5 cms x 47 cms Note: Edward Hillel was born in 1953 in Baghdad, Iraq. He grew up in Montreal, Quebec, and graduated from McGill University in 1975, having studied political science and philosophy. He spent several years as a community organizer before devoting himself wholly to his art since 1990. A self-taught artist, his works are a form of gesammtkunstwerk, a total engagement with the world he inhabits. A recurring theme for his work has been the stories of Holocaust survivors and the members of the resistance. These works saw an evolution over time that went from standard portraits with audio recordings to multimedia displays built into portable installations, as in "The Birds are Back" (1999). In 2006, Hillel opened his art space in Harlem, New York and, in 2008, founded the Harlem Bienniale, an international arts & culture event that takes place in Harlem, New York.Hillel's photographs have appeared in publications such as Le Monde, Esquire, Fortune, Newsweek and Paris Match. He has received the German Critics Visual Arts Prize (Berlin), The Golden Sheaf Film Award (Canada), the Prix Alain de Rothschild (France), and the Spiro Institute Award (UK). Hillel divides his time between Paris, Montreal and New York.

Description: JENNIFER DICKSON, RASUSPENDED TIME: THE BOBOLI GARDENS, photograph; signed, titled, numbered 6/30 13.5 ins x 19.5 ins; 34.3 cms x 49.5 cms Note: Jennifer Dickson was born in Piet Retief, the Republic of South Africa, in 1936. With her mother's moral and financial support (her father believed in traditional homemakers' roles for his four daughters), she went to England where she studied painting and printmaking at Goldsmith's College School of Art (University of London, England) from 1954 to 1959. From1960 to 1965, on a French Government scholarship, she was an associate of the prestigious graphic workshop, Atelier 17 in Paris, working with Stanley William Hayter. Hayter imparted upon Dickson an analytical rather than emotional approach to her work, as well as the importance of risk taking to discover new forms of expressions and techniques. She went on to found and direct the graduate printmaking program at Brighton College of Art (now Brighton University), where she was instrumental in integrating photography into the program. By this point in her career, Dickson had already established an international reputation: Her etchings were published in a number of major thematic suites. In 1963, she was awarded the Prix des Jeunes Artistes pour Gravure at the Biennial de Paris, and her work, Genesis, was exhibited in the Prizewinners Salon of the Biennale de Paris in 1965. Dickson immigrated to Canada in 1969 where she directed the Graphics program at the Saidye Bronfman Center in Montreal (1970-71, 1981), and taught Drawing at Concordia University. Since 1962, Dickson has had more than 60 solo exhibitions in six countries and has participated in more than 400 group exhibitions. Some of her more renowned exhibits include The Secret Garden (1975), Three Mirrors to Narcissus (1979), Sanctuary: A Landscape of the Mind (2005), which ran at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, England, and The Gods (2006), now part of the permanent collection at the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography.Dickson was elected to the Royal Academy of Arts, London, England in 1970, the only Canadian in the 200-year history of this prestigious institution to have been so honored. Dickson was named to the Order of Canada (CM) in 1995, and was awarded an honorary doctorate (LLD) in 1988 by the University of Alberta, Edmonton. In 2002, she was given the Victor Tolgesy Award for cultural leadership by the Council for the Arts in Ottawa. Also in that year, the National Archives of Canada established the Jennifer Dickson Fonds; the collection will eventually hold all of Dickson's original photographic material. Dickson lives and works in Ottawa, Ontario.

Description: GEORGE S. ZIMBELTHE BOX, 5 black and white photographs Each image 13 ins x 71 ins; 33 cms x 180.3 cms Note: George Zimbel was born in Woburn, Massachusetts, in 1929. His interest in photography started at an early age; he bought his first professional camera at the age of fourteen, and worked for a local newspaper. Zimbel received his Bachelor of Arts from Columbia University, in New York City, in 1951. During his studies there, he was appointed both photographer and editor of the university newspaper, and had published an image in LIFE magazine. In 1949, whilst still at Columbia, he studied with the painter and architecture photographer John Ebstel at the Photo League, which influenced his subsequent dedication to documentary photography. Upon graduating, Zimbel was accepted as a non-paying student in the course directed by Alexey Brodovitch, and worked as a correspondent of Pix Inc., one of the first photo agencies in New York. It was there that he met photographers Ed Feingersh, Bob Schwalberg, Bob Henriques and Garry Winograd, who would introduce Zimbel to the new 35 mm cameras. After completing his military service from 1951 to 1953, he retuned to New York and worked as a freelance photographer, his works being published in major newspapers and magazines, such as The New York Times, Look, Saturday Review and Architectural Forum. In the mid 1950's and early 1960's, Zimbel documented some of the most symbolic people of American history: the Presidents Harry S. Truman (in the famous series "A President in Retirement"), John and Jacqueline Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Richard M. Nixon. He also portrayed personalities such as Leonard Bernstein, Helen Keller, Mickey Rooney and Jean Seberg. In 1954, Zimbel took some of his best-known photographs, the series on Marilyn Monroe during the film shooting of the film, The Seven-Year Itch."Zimbel and his family moved to a farm in Prince Edward Island in 1971, where he continued with his photography and worked on the farm. He moved to Montreal, Quebec, in 1980 and returned to documentary photography and presented his works in numerous major solo and group exhibitions, including Marilyn Monroe (New Orleans, 1995), and The Photography Show (New York 1996). Zimbel's works are included in the collections of major museums in Canada and the United States, including the Museum of Modern Art and the International Center of Photography in New York, the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography in Ottawa, the Canada Council Art Bank in Ottawa, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, the Library of Congress in Washington DC. Zimbel lives in Montreal, Quebec

Description: JOHN MASSEY & BECKY SINGLETONAFTERLIFE - GIANT ERYNGO YELLOW, AFTER BLOSSEFELDT, direct positive print 14 ins x 11 ins; 35.6 cms x 27.9 cms Note: John Massey was born in 1950 in Toronto, Ontario, the son of prominent architect, Hart Massey, the grandson of The Right Honorable Vincent Massey, and the descendant of a patrician family of patrons of the arts. He studied English & History at Trent University for one year and went on to study at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto from 1971 to 1974. Massey focused on photography of architectural interiors in the late 1970's and, with computer manipulation coming into its own in the early 1980's, he was among those who embraced the new technology. Digital manipulation confirmed his long-held belief that any kind of photograph amounts to an artificial construction rather than a simple depiction of reality. He currently lives and works in Toronto, Ontario.

Description: EDWARD BURTYNSKYURANIUM TAILINGS, ELLIOT LAKE, ONT #7, print; signed, titled, dated, numbered 1/10 front 13 ins x 24.5 ins; 33 cms x 62.2 cms Note: Edward Burtynsky is one of Canada's most celebrated photographers. His imagery explores the intricate link between industry and nature, combining the raw elements of mining, quarrying, manufacturing, shipping, oil production and recycling into eloquent, highly expressive visions that find beauty and humanity in the most unlikely of places.Edward Burtynsky was born in 1955 St. Catharines, Ontario. His parents had immigrated from the Ukraine in 1951, and his father found work at the local General Motors plant on the production line. (Burtynsky links his early exposure to the sites and images of the plant to the development of his photographic work.) At age 11, Burtynsky's father had set up an amateur dark room in their house, and Edward and his sister learned how to make black-and-white prints. The two of them ran a small portrait business at the local Ukrainian center. In the early 1970's Burtynsky worked in printing and took night classes in photography. He obtained a diploma in Graphic Arts from Niagara College in Welland, Ontario, in 1976, and a BAA in Photographic Arts from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute in Toronto, Ontario, in 1982. In 2006, Burtynsky was the subject of the documentary film, Manufactured Landscapes, that was shown at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival in the World Cinema Documentary Competition. That same year Burtynsky was named Officer of the Order of Canada. Burtynsky's photographs are found in over 50 museums worldwide. He is also the recipient of four honorary doctorates: Laws, from Mt. Allison University, Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada in Laws, from Queen's University, Kingston; in Fine Arts in Photography Study from Ryerson University, Toronto; and in Fine Art, from Montserrat College of Art, Boston. He was awarded the TED Prize in 2005.

Description: RAY MEADUNTITLED, watercolour on paper; signed 14 ins x 19.5 ins; 35.6 cms x 49.5 cms Note: Ray Mead was born in 1921 in Watford, Hertfordshire, England. In 1939, Mead served as a pilot in the Royal Air Force in the Second World War, and, following an injury, was posted to Hamilton, Ontario, traveling to the United States to train American bomber pilots for war. Mead was exposed to American culture and the New York art scene, which brought a new freedom to his work. Mead returned to Hamilton in 1946, and developed a friendship with the artist, Hortense Gordon, who had trained with Hans Hoffman. Gordon's mentoring further supported his movement into abstract art. Mead eventually moved to Toronto, where he worked as a commercial artist and art director for an advertising agency. In his free time he created abstract and non-objective paintings in watercolors and oils. He had his first public showing of his art at the Art Gallery of Hamilton in 1948, with his second at the Art Gallery of Toronto in 1950. He joined the Ontario Society of Artists, exhibiting with the group in 1950, and developed close relationships with several of the artists, who would eventually form Painters Eleven. Over the next decade, Mead was included in fifteen Painters Eleven exhibitions, their premiere being at the Roberts Gallery in 1954. Mead also held solo shows in New York City (1955); the Isaacs Gallery, Toronto (1957); and at George Loranger's, Ottawa (1957).

Description: JACK VANDER WAL#4, AUGUST 1988, oil on canvas; signed, dated; signed, titled, dated on reverse 56 ins x 46 ins; 142.2 cms x 116.8 cms Note: Jack Vander Wal was born in 1924 in Leewarden, Holland. Growing up in a strict business environment, he took an early interest in painting in his youth as a means of creative release. As there was very little opportunity to make a living in Holland after World War II, Vander Wal immigrated to Canada in 1952, supporting his family as a farm worker in Alberta. He was, however, haunted by the destruction and devastation of the war, and painted for solace in his spare time. Vander Wal had his first exhibition in 1964 and has since exhibited across Canada, in the United States and France. His paintings are found in public and corporate collections across Canada. In 1974, Vander Wal moved to the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, where he has painted prolifically ever since.

In 1983, he accompanied the National Geographic expedition to the high arctic as Camp Artist. His style has since evolved to a more minimalist approach, focusing primarily on form and colour. In the early 2000's, Heinecke began to explore sculpture, participating in several group exhibitions in Ontario. He lives in Campbellford, Ontario.

He studied art as a child at the Art Gallery of Toronto, under Arthur Lismer. Houston was educated at the Ontario College of Art, under L.A.C. Panton, at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, and in Tokyo, Japan, at the Hanga under Unichi-Hirasuka, where he mastered printmaking.He returned home after the war, and in 1948, decided to move up to the Eastern Arctic region, where he served as a Northern Service Officer and Civil Administrator of West Baffin Island. Perhaps the most noted accomplishment of his career was exposing Inuit art to the world. He set up the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative, giving the opportunity to many Inuit artisans to make a comfortable living selling their sculptures and other works of art. Houston recognized the aesthetic merits of the local art work and brought small carvings to the Canadian Handicrafts Guild in Montreal. The guild was so impressed with the quality of the carvings and with Houston himself that it secured a grant from the federal government, allowing him to purchase art from various communities in the Eastern Arctic. Houston went on to successfully introduce printmaking in 1957. In 1957, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts acquired a number of his sketches.Houston moved to New York in 1962, and worked as a master designer at the Steuben Glass Co. for ten years. In 1992, he was honored with a major retrospective exhibit of his work at Steuben, held at the Corning Museum of Glass, in Corning, New York. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary also displays Houston's Aurora Borealis, created in 1976; the four-storey sculpture of acrylic and brushed aluminum is the centerpiece of the museum's foyer. In 1974, Houston was appointed Office of the Order of Canada for his role in representing the interests of Inuit artists and artisans and in 1992, he was named one of the one hundred and twenty five most influential Canadians in the country's history. In 1981, the Houston family opened the Houston North Gallery in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, which is almost entirely devoted to showing, selling and educating the public on Inuit art and culture.

During this time, he produced a series of abstract landscape paintings, collages, and assemblages working with different media such as wood, canvas, paint and transparent plastic.In 1961, Wood won the Darlington Award, giving him the opportunity to paint full-time for a year. From 1961 to 1963, he lived in Zennor, near St. Ives, producing a series of abstract paintings inspired by the landscape of Cornwall. A new teaching position in 1963 brought him to Leeds, and he had his first solo exhibition at The New Art Centre in London. In 1966 he moved to Cardiff, Wales where he taught at Cardiff College.Wood toured and lectured extensively in Canada and the United States from 1971 to 1974. During his time in North America, he was drawn to the beauty and diversity of the British Columbian landscape, and immigrated with his family to Vancouver in 1974. His works at this time focused more intently on collage and relief elements, reducing Waterfall (1975), a painting with a wooden projection wrapped with painted canvas that extended over one meter onto the floor. It was during this decade that Wood developed what he called "two-dimensional painting", as exhibited in Cats Cradle (Squamish) (1977).In the early 1980s, Wood began his "wild west" series, incorporating abstract elements of ranch structures, cowboys, horse and teepees into his paintings. In 1981, he installed his "three-dimensional painting" Ranch at the Charles H. Scott Gallery, Emily Carr College of Art, and in 1983 completed his environmental work Ranch, installed on a 129-hectare property in the foothills of the Alberta Rockies. The work comprised of twelve three-dimensional tableaux, incorporating thousands of meters of painted canvas to cover hundreds of meters of lumber for the construction of a corral, a huge windmill, an eighteen-meter bridge, barns, chutes, and gates. The installation was dismantled a year later.In the late 1980s and 1990's, Wood returned to the themes of nature and to two-dimensional collages, exploring the simplified shapes of rocks and waterfalls. From the mid-1990's and into the 2000's, Wood maintained his focus on nature, exploring abstraction contained by the format of a frame, such as in To the Sea, Red Tree, 1995, as well as irregularly-shaped relief constructions, as in Green Surge, 2003. In 2008, Wood exhibited Dreams and Memories in Vancouver, incorporating the figure of his late wife, Flora McLeod, into his landscape abstract.Since 1962, Wood has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the United States, Australia, Great Britain and Europe. His work is included in prominent collections worldwide, including the Tate Gallery in London. Wood lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Description: DENYSE THOMASOSWHISTLE, acrylic on canvas; signed, dated 94 on reverse 48 ins x 42 ins; 121.9 cms x 106.7 cms Note: Denyse Thomasos was born in 1964 in Trinidad and immigrated to Canada in 1970 with her family, settling in Mississauga, Ontario. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Painting and Art History from the University of Toronto 1987 and her Master of Fine Arts in Painting at Yale School of Art, Yale University in 1989. As a recent graduate, she installed the large mural Recollect at Mercer Union, one which alluded to both raffia textiles and the architecture of slavery. Thomasos had her first solo show, Rally, at the Olga Korper Gallery in Toronto. Thomasos came to prominence after moving to New York in the 1990's. She often painted directly onto gallery walls, staging large-scale installations such as Tracking: Thirty Years in Canada, Thirty Years in Trinidad at the Art Gallery of Bishop's University in Lennoxville, the MSVU Art Gallery in Halifax, and the monumental 50-foot mural Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto (2006). She later returned to the canvas with her 2010 exhibit, From Superjails to Super Paintings. Thomasos found most of her artistic inspiration during research trips around the world, which included her visit to South Africa in 1997, after receiving a Guggenheim Fellowship. While on her travels, Thomasos looked at the indigenous and political structures of the countries she visited: prisons in Cambodia, war sites in Vietnam, Africa, India and China. The result of all these reflections was seen in her exhibition, Kingdom Come, held at the Oakville Galleries in 2011. Thomasos exhibited national and internationally. Her work has been reviewed by international publications including ArtForum, Artnews, Art in America, and the New York Times. She was bestowed with numerous awards and artist residencies including a Guggenheim Award (1997), a PEW Fellowship (1995), Bellagio residency (2001), Yaddo Residency, Joan Mitchell Award (1998) and NYFA (2008). Most recently, she was named the first recipient of the McMillan/Stewart Award, recognizing unique and outstanding contributions made by women artists.

Description: ULYSSE COMTOISSCENE D'ATELIER "PAYSAGES", acrylic on wood; signed, dated 89; signed, titled, dated on reverse 48 ins x 80 ins; 121.9 cms x 203.2 cms Note: Ulysses Comtois was born in Granby, Quebec in 193. Comtois studied briefly at the École des beaux-arts in Montreal (1949-50) before deciding to leave the school and to focus on his own art, inspired by the Automatistes and their 1948 manifesto, Refus global. Some of his work from that period consisted of colour bars over a background of bright colours. He participated in the last Automatistes exhibition, La matière chante, organized by Claude Gauvreau at Galerie Antoine in the spring of 1954. In 1955, he was part of the group exhibition Espace 55, at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. After the demise of the Automatistes, Comtois joined the Association des artistes non-figuratifs de Montréal, an alliance of Plasticiens and Automatistes. and participated in their exhibitions from 1955 to 1959.Comtois received a Canada Council grant in 1963, allowing him to travel in Europe and Israel. By the 1960's Comtois was creating novel sculptural pieces first in wood then in metal, exhibiting his small scuptures of welded steel at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in 1961. In 1968, the National Gallery of Canada selected Comtois, together with Guido Molinari, to represent Canada at the 34th Venice Biennale. The NGC purchased Comtois' kinetic sculpture, Column, for its collection, a work that has been on view at the National Gallery since 1995. The piece comprises of 70 aluminum plates fitted over a steel rod with base, each of the plates independently movable through a full circle. He also produced a relief mural for the entrance of the Expo '67 Administration & News Building. Throughout his career, Comtois taught at several institutions, including the École des beaux-arts in Montreal (1965-70), Université du Québec à Montréal (1970-72), Université Laval, (1970-76), and Concordia University (1976-85; 1991-94).

Description: KIM ADAMSNICKLE & DIMING 2, acrylic on paper; signed, dated '83 22 ins x 30 ins; 55.9 cms x 76.2 cms Note: Kim Adams is considered one of Canada's leading Contemporary sculptors. Through his use of commonplace objects, ranging from farm machinery and automobile parts to household objects, toys and model train parts, Adams creates both large and small-scale sculptures that resemble fictional worlds and imaginary landscapes.Kim Adams was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1951. He studied at the Northwest Coast Institute of the Arts (1974); the Kootenay School of Art (1974-75); and the University of Victoria (1975-77), where he received his MFA in 1979. By 1976 he had gained a reputation for his colour field paintings taken to the extreme. In the 1980's he was producing untitled installations, one which he exhibited at the Ydessa Gallery, Toronto in 1981. For the past twenty-five years, Adams' work has explored two fundamentals of suburban life: the vehicle and the home, such as Decoy Homes (1987) and Earth Wagon (1989-91). In 2001, Adams had two major exhibitions running concurrently, one at the Power Plant in Toronto, which featured his large sculptures, small models and drawings from 1984-2001; the other exhibition was at Oakville Galleries, featuring his tour the force - "Bruegel-Bosch Bus, now in the permanent collection of the Art Gallery of Hamilton. Adams has participated in major solo and group exhibitions in Canada, Australia, the United States and Europe. He has exhibited in some of the most prestigious international art exhibitions, including the Sydney Biennale of Contemporary Art, Sydney Australia; Skulptur Projekt 97, Münster, Germany; and InSite1997, San Diego, California and Tijuana, Mexico. His works are also part of the collections of major museums in Canada and elsewhere. In 2012 he was the recipient of the Gershon Iskowitz Prize, and in 2013, Adams was named Guggenheim Fellow.

Description: LEONARD BROOKS, RCALILLIES, acrylic on canvas; signed, dated '71, inscribed "Rome" 42 ins x 31 ins; 106.7 cms x 78.7 cms Note: Leonard Brooks was born at Enfield, London, England, in 1911. His family immigrated to Canada in 1912, settling in Toronto. Brooks was primarily a self-taught painter, but did study at the Ontario College of Art for six months under Frank Johnston. After traveling and painting in Europe and the States, he settled in Toronto and married Reva Silverman. He taught drawing, painting and graphic arts at the Northern Vocational School and participated in major exhibitions in Canada and the US. In 1943 Brooks enlisted in the Navy (RCNVR) as an able seaman, and was eventually promoted to Official War Artist, painting the movements of an aircraft carrier in the waters of Scotland and the activities of mine sweepers and motor torpedo boats in the English channel off Normandy. Brooks was the most productive of the seven Canadian naval artists, producing 113 works in a two-year period. His most recognized work of that period, Potato Peelers, is unique among war artists for its subject matter, capturing two sailors in the unglamorous act of preparing dinner.Brooks obtained a grant after the war from the Department of Veterans Affairs to study art in Mexico. In 1947, he and his wife permanently relocated to San Miguel de Allende, north of Mexico City, where he taught for several years. It was in Mexico that Brooks' style evolved from abstract to free-form collage acrylics with rich textures. He was also among the first expatriate artists to establish an artist colony in the Mexican town. Brooks was also an accomplished violinist and gave free lessons to local children. He was encouraged to head the music department at the Bellas Artes in San Miguel. He also published several books on watercolor and oil painting techniques. His work has been exhibited world wide and was a member of the Royal Canadian Academy. He died in San Miguel de Allende in 2011 at the age of one hundred.
