Description: GENERAL IDEAURSA MAJOR AND TAURUS: PAVILLION FRAGMENTS FROM THE STARRY VAULT, colour serigraph; signed, titled, dated 1983 and numbered 12/100 sight 22.75 ins x 30.5 ins; 57.8 cms x 77.5 cms Note: The influence of General Idea on the Canadian and international contemporary art world is profound. Working and living together from 1967 through 1994, the collective of AA Bronson, Felix Partz and Jorge Zontal produced an astonishing body of work in both traditional forms as well as unconventional media and would become the model for future collaborations.General Idea used media as a vehicle to subvert traditional media and pop culture with paintings, prints, sculpture, video, installations - and even a beauty pageant - as part of their scope. Best known for its 1987 redesign of Robert Indiana's "Love" into a quadrant symbol spelling "AIDS," General Idea gained popular exposure as the colorful repeating logo was transformed into paintings, prints and posters seen around the world in art galleries, museums, and on billboards, buildings and bus stops.Partz and Zontal died tragically of AIDS in 1994 while AA Bronson continues his work as an artist, curator and educator.

Evoking questions of the body, the archetype, and cross-cultural understanding, Pien's work investigates personal and cultural histories as exemplified by his Chinoiseries (2010) series of drawings sparked by 18th century ceramic designs, his Drawings on Hell (1998-2004), a long term investigation of Western and Taiwanese notions of fear and punishment, and his London drawings (2006) which explore colonial perceptions and representations. Pien is also acclaimed for his room-sized paper cuts and translucent paper and ink installations such as the Hieronymous Bosch inspired Earthly Delights (2001) held in the collection of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. His work also appears in the collections of The Canada Council Art Bank, the McIntosh Gallery in London, Ontario, the Hamilton Art Gallery, the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario and in private and foundation collections. Pien has exhibited in Canada and internationally at significant venues such as New York's Drawing Centre, Amsterdam's W139, the Centre Nacional e las Artes in Mexico City, the Art Gallery of Ontario and the National Gallery of Canada. His work has also been shown in commercial galleries and artist-run centres worldwide.

Lot 3: GARY EVANS, BRADFORD, oil on canvas, 16 ins x 20 ins; 40.6 cms x 50.8 cms

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: GARY EVANSBRADFORD, oil on canvas; signed, titled and dated 2003 on the reverse 16 ins x 20 ins; 40.6 cms x 50.8 cms Provenance: Paul Petro Contemporary Art, TorontoNote: Gary Evans' extraordinary imagery projects scores of visual potential. Splintering smudges, saucers and shapes of colour appear alongside elements of the cityscapes and landscapes, creating complex representations and spatial havoc. The results are complicated images, fraught with contrasts that, in the hands of the artist, work to create an exciting visual dissonance. Evans graduated from the Ontario College of Art (Toronto, ON) and has exhibited his work across Canada and in Europe. Selections of his work can be found in the permanent collections of the Art Gallery of Kelowna (Kelowna, BC), Hart House (Toronto, ON), and a number of private and corporate collections. Evans is represented by Paul Petro Contemporary Art in Toronto.

Lot 4: JOHN SCOTT, EXCUTIVE [SIC] VIKING, mixed media on paper, 24 ins x 18 ins; 61 cms x 45.7 cms

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: JOHN SCOTTEXCUTIVE [SIC] VIKING, mixed media on paper 24 ins x 18 ins; 61 cms x 45.7 cms Note: Born in Windsor, Ontario, John Scott has been a significant player in the Canadian contemporary art world for the past twenty years. Scott completed his education at the University of Toronto and Ontario College of Art, having left high school after grade ten to work in a factory. Scott considers himself a politically charged, blue-collar artist whose rabbit-like drawings "stand in for the anxiety-ridden human being, the harassed victim of the technological threat and militaristic oppression." His most famous work, which is part of the National Gallery of Canada's permanent collection, is a black Pontiac Trans-Am incised with the Book of Revelations entitled Trans-Am Apocalypse No. 2 (1993). Scott's apocalypse-mobile and rabbit-like figures are said to allude to an '"impending sense of tragedy and terror." His works are exhibited throughout Canada and are represented in prestigious collections including the Art Gallery of Ontario; Museum of Modern Art, New York; University of Toronto; and the National Gallery of Canada.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: PETER KRAUSZVESPERALES NO.17, secco (egg tempera and alkyd) on panel; signed, titled and dated "Dec. 2005" on the reverse 30 ins x 19.75 ins; 76.2 cms x 50.2 cms Provenance: Galerie de Bellefeuille, MontrealNote: Peter Krausz was born in Romania in 1946 and graduated from the Bucharest Academy of Fine Arts in 1969 before coming to Montreal in 1970. Using the ancient painting technique "secco" which means "dry" in Italian, Krausz creates vibrant canvases achieved by applying many transparent layers of colour. Frequently portraying lush landscapes or bucolic views of the countryside, Krausz's work is meant to engage the viewer in an act of remembrance. The calm and peaceful landscapes he paints are in fact sites of historic violence; the passage of time eliminating signs of atrocities. From 1980 to 1991, Krausz was the curator of the Saidye Bronfman Centre for Fine Arts in Montreal. Since 1991, he has taught in the Department of Art History and Cinema at the University of Montreal. Peter Krausz is represented by the De Bellefeuille Gallery in Montreal, the Mira Godard Gallery in Toronto and the Forum Gallery in New York.

Diverse in style and subject matter, Koop is known to grace unconventional materials with her acrylics, including plywood and the ragtop of a convertible car. The Vancouver native has shown her work in over 50 solo exhibitions over the past three decades in Canada, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Germany, Brazil, Japan, the USA, Italy, India and China. Her work is featured in the collections of the Reykjavik Art Museum (Reykjavik, ISL), Musée d'Art Contemporain (Montréal, QC), National Gallery of Canada and the Canada Council Art Bank, amongst others. Her work within the community must also be noted.

She is the recipient of a myriad of awards both nationally and internationally including honourary degrees from The University of Winnipeg (Honourary Doctor of Letters, 2002) and Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design (2007).

His work explores storytelling and hints at narratives found in our built environments and the nominal subjects in our surroundings. At its essence, Brown's work is a reflection on the Canadian landscape and small town life, laying bare a country that is in one light authentic and charming, and in another troubled and enigmatic. His work has been presented in solo and group shows and has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards. Most recently his work was awarded first place in the Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition at the Orillia Museum of Art and History and the Biennial Juried Exhibition at the Thames Art Gallery.-Courtesy of the artist

Through distressing and aging his work he creates the sense of past and present, of struggle and transformation. Nederveen's work draws connections between our natural environment and aspects of spirituality that stem from his own practice of meditation. A glass-like layer of resin coats each piece, enhancing the clarity of the image and reflecting the viewer into the work. Steven Nederveen studied fine art at Medicine Hat College and went on to receive a Bachelor of Design from the University of Alberta in 1995. His studio is currently based in Toronto. Nederveen's work is featured internationally in galleries, art fairs, magazines, and many private collections.

In 2008, he was featured in the Magenta Foundation's publication, Carte Blanche Vol. 2: Painting. His work has been presented in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, and Pittsburgh. Describing his painting practice as an elaboration on an "aesthetic of entropy," Killen's work explores themes of corrosion, erosion, deterioration, and other forms of destruction, particularly through representation of urban space in a state of decay and recently in "found still lifes" such as piles of demolition/renovation detritus. Creating complex compositions that challenge the viewer's perspective, his objective is to create contrasts between form and content, flatness and painterliness, while still maintaining compositional and thematic cohesion.

Description: ATTILA RICHARD LUKACSBAMBOO SERIES, mixed media on canvas; signed and inscribed "05/007" on the reverse 48 ins x 24 ins; 121.9 cms x 61 cms Note: From the succès de scandale of his 1980s homoerotic skinhead paintings, to the standing-room-only vernissage of his 2011 show of gestural, greyed abstractions, Attila Richard Lukacs' high profile work and life have long captured the popular imagination. Suggestive, aggressive, painterly, his work is known for its oversized scale, knowledge of art history, and love of the male nude, whether in the form of sensual portraits of skinheads, poetic and mythological scenes, gold-leaf inflected botanical studies, or surrealistic military dreamscapes. His many national and international exhibitions and collections follow his personal trajectory, from Canada to Germany, New York, Hawaii, and back to British Columbia's Lower Mainland. In the fall of 2011, the Art Gallery of Hamilton showcased more than 35 works by Lukacs from the collection of Salah J. Bachir, including classic paintings such as The Lazy Kunstler, and the Well Travelled Monkey (1995), collages, and Polaroid studies.

Of Swiss and Dunne-za First Nations ancestry, Jungen came to prominence in the 1990s by disassembling and reassembling Nike Air Jordan sneakers to resemble Northwest Coast Aboriginal masks. He would go on to explore his interest in repurposing sports paraphernalia to create sculptures out of catcher's mitts, baseball bats, and basket ball jerseys pointing to the link between the social and environmental effects of our globalized trade in mass-produced objects. Jungen's interest in architecture is also integral to his practice evident in his creation of "shelters" for animals as well as people. He is the recipient of both the Sobey Art Award and the Gershon Iskowitz Prize and has exhibited, and is collected, worldwide.

Kipping's paintings also celebrated well-known urban landmarks such as Toronto's Union Station and New York City's Fifth Avenue Clock. Over the course of his career, Kipping's paintings were shown in about 150 group and solo exhibitions across Canada and overseas. Kipping succumbed to cancer in 2007 at the age of 53.

Known through the 1990s as an abstract modernist, Urban's solo show at the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2002 surprised visitors with representational paintings, including the critically-acclaimed A Toy in the Pond. Recent works such as The Returner 1 (2011) and House of Blues (2007), have reclaimed the visual vocabulary of abstraction. Often named as the leading Canadian painter of his generation, Urban has exhibited works in prominent commercial galleries across Canada, the U.S. and Europe, and is represented in many private and public collections, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Macdonald Stewart Art Gallery, and the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal. In 2002, Urban curated "Painters 15" for the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art and the Shanghai Museum of Art, the first survey of contemporary Canadian art to take place in China.

Description: DIANA THORNEYCROFTGROUP OF SEVEN AWKWARD MOMENTS (WHITE PINE AND THE GROUP OF DWARFS), chromogenic print 20.5 ins x 29.75 ins; 52.1 cms x 75.6 cms Note: The works of the Winnipeg-born artist Diana Thorneycroft surge with humour, the artist's tongue placed firmly in cheek. Her appropriated mass media subjects, including killer cartoons, objectified babydolls, or other figurines, have all the kitschy charm of a high school diorama, uniting in a revolt against the posited practices of "fine art." Never afraid to irritate or offend, the bold Thorneycroft has exhibited across North America and Europe, including at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (Toronto, ON) and the Canadian Cultural Centre (Paris, FRA). Her work can be found in the collections of the Canadian Museum for Contemporary Photography (Ottawa, ON), Vancouver Art Gallery (Vancouver, BC), and the Winnipeg Art Gallery (Winnipeg, MB) amongst others. Thorneycroft received her BFA from the University of Manitoba (Winnipeg, MB) and MA from the University of Wisconsin (Madison, WI). She is represented by the Michael Gibson Gallery in London, Ontario.

These works often celebrate femininity, with depictions of the sea goddess, Sedna, or maternal scenes that sometimes represent his own wife and children. His works are featured in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa, ON) and have exhibited at the Winnipeg Art Gallery (Winnipeg, MB), McMichael Canadian Art Collection (Kleinburg, ON), and the Canadian Guild of Crafts Quebec (Montreal, QC).

Description: ALEX CAMERONBLUE ORANGE LEAVES, oil on canvas; signed, titled and dated 2005 on the reverse 30.25 ins x 38.25 ins; 76.8 cms x 97.2 cms Note: Artistically active since the early 1970s, Alex Cameron creates thickly painted works of oil on canvas, overflowing with colour and exuding joy. Exploring landscape and abstract idioms, Cameron works both large and small. Wall-sized paintings such as Red Pine Wild (2010) bring a Fauvist sensibility to familiar Canadian terrain, while small, page-sized abstractions such as Blue Dribble (2010) reference Indian miniatures and Cameron's travels. Extensively exhibited through four decades, Cameron's work was featured in Four Toronto Painters at the Ontario Art Gallery (1976), 14 Canadians at Washington's Hirschorn Museum (1977), and Alex Cameron in Mid-Career (1985), a traveling early retrospective organized by the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa. Based in Toronto, Cameron has shown across Canada and in the US and is extensively collected in private and public collections, such as those of the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Art Gallery of Hamilton, and the Office of the Prime Minister of Canada.

Description: STEVE DRISCOLLFROM THE HEAVENS, urethane and pigment on board; signed, titled and dated /09 on the reverse 30 ins x 60 ins; 76.2 cms x 152.4 cms Provenance: Private Collection, OntarioNote: A landscape painter in the mainstream of the Canadian tradition, Toronto-based OCAD graduate Steve Driscoll conjures a vision of nature undulating with atmosphere and heightened color effects. Bright, emotional and dynamic, Driscoll's paintings are steeped in the romance of the Canadian landscape. Driscoll has most recently turned to the medium of urethane to achieve the sparkle and trembling effects of light he wanted to capture. Animated and unified by his painting technique, his works are distinct in their mood and tone. Driscoll describes the medium of urethane as key to the works: "The passage of time is what urethane depicts so well. Its fluidity holds the minuet details of a landscape in motion. I hope these paintings convey the sense of peace and rejuvenation that I experienced in each of these places."

Description: STEPHEN ANDREWSDISSOLVE, A PORTFOLIO OF SIX PRINTS, lithographs; each signed, dated '13 and numbered 9/15; unframed each 22 ins x 30 ins; 55.9 cms x 76.2 cms Note: With a mix of drawing, painting, printmaking, and animation, Toronto artist Stephen Andrews questions the role of personal memory and media imagery in contemporary self-understanding using familiar visual tropes: the Ben-Day dots of commercial printing and the digital degradation of pixilated news media, for instance. His well-known monochrome Facsimile series (1991-92) was based on faxed versions of obituary portraits of men who had died of AIDS; the drawings of The Quick and the Dead series (2004) renders media images from the Iraq war in candy-coloured pastels. Known for his dot paintings of crowds, Andrews used his signature pixilated style in The View from Here, a commission for the entryway of Toronto's brand new Trump Tower. The huge three-paneled work is comprised of 500,000 pieces of porcelain, glass, stone and gold tiles creating an image of a multicultural crowd of cheering people. Throughout the last twenty-five years, Andrews has exhibited across Canada as well as in the US, Brazil, France, Scotland, and Japan. Extensively collected both privately and publicly, Andrews' work can be found in the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Schwarz Art Collection at the Harvard Business School.

Much of Poldaas' oeuvre is concerned with the formulation of colour and according to Roald Nasgaard in Abstract Painting in Canada (2007), "The distinction of Poldaas' project was that he was working with colour at a time when colour had little place in Minimalist or Conceptual art." Poldaas' work is collected internationally and is included in the permanent collections of the Art Gallery of Ontario and the National Gallery of Canada.

Description: ROBERT FONESEGYPTIAN EXPANDED G / LION'S MANE, 1990, mixed media sculpture 42.5 ins x 94.25 ins x 10 ins; 108 cms x 239.4 cms x 25.4 cms Provenance: Private Collection, TorontoCarmen Lamanna Gallery, TorontoNote: Born in 1949, Robert Fones began his career in the vibrant art scene of his birthplace, London, Ontario. Mentored by Greg Curnoe, Fones made important contributions within the region, including the founding of Forest City Gallery in 1973. In 1976 he moved to Toronto where he currently lives and practices. Working across a variety of media including painting, sculpture, photography and printed-matter, Robert Fones has established himself as an integral proponent of Canada's conceptual art movement. His works provide an examination of cultural production, calling into question the relationship between the natural artifact and the manufactured product. Through curious combinations of pictograms, unique typefaces, and geometric shapes, Fones investigates processes of change across geological, cultural and industrial histories. Viewers, initially drawn in by elements of pop culture and anthropomorphism, find themselves engaged with work heavily punctuated by social critique. Represented by Olga Korper Gallery, Robert Fones has exhibited throughout Canada, the USA, and Germany. In 2011 he was the recipient of the Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts. His work is included in many corporate and public collections, including the permanent collections of the Art Gallery of Ontario, Museum London, The Canada Council Art Bank, and the National Gallery of Canada.

"I seek out materials that lend themselves visually and conceptually to the subject I am dealing with," she says. Often incorporating metals such as copper in her sculptural collages, her ultimate purpose is to evoke how a place feels - the interpretation of time, space, and other subtle nuances. Kissik is a graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Tufts University where she was a fifth year Traveling Scholar recipient. She received two Pollock-Krasner grants and has exhibited in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Her artwork is widely collected in both private and public collections.

Description: APRIL HICKOXPORTHOLES (LAMP AND STACKS), chromogenic prints; both signed, titled and numbered 1/7 on the backing; the second dated 2012 on the backing 24 ins x 20 ins; 61 cms x 50.8 cms Provenance: Katzman Kamen Gallery, TorontoNote: These images were taken from a ship sailing the St. Lawrence River from Îles de la Madeleine to the Port of Montreal. In these works the porthole acts as a viewing device mimicking a lens, isolating observation and the movement of the ship. The colourations and markings on the images are due to the thickness of the glass in the porthole, combined with the effects of salt water and weathering. The porthole replaces the framing mechanism of the camera, while the movement of the ship provides a constructed vantage point for viewing. Most of the images were taken at dawn before the city had gained consciousness. The shadow of the ship is often seen in the images, imposing itself and its movement on the buildings. The buildings are familiar historical icons that are being transformed to new uses in many Canadian port cities. This work suggests a nameless place, a place of transitions and passages.-Courtesy of the artist

Smith's work has been shown extensively over the past 40 years at institutions including the Albright Knox Gallery in Buffalo, New York, Fischer Fine Arts in London, England, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, British Columbia, and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton, New Brunswick. His paintings and drawings have been collected by the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, the London Regional Art Gallery, the Hamilton Art Gallery and by many private and corporate art lovers.

Description: GORDON RAYNERUNTITLED, mixed media sculpture; signed and dated 1983 on the reverse 13 ins x 4 ins x 4 ins; 33 cms x 10.2 cms x 10.2 cms Note: Renowned for his manipulation of painting materials, Gordon Rayner has been called "the carpenter" of contemporary Canadian art. Rayner was taught by his father, a landscape painter, and worked in various commercial art firms, including Wookey, Bush and Winter with Jack Bush. Rayner's early 1960s work, with its juxtaposed materials, experiments in canvas shape and sense of humour and reflects the neo-dada mood then prevalent in Toronto. In time he became a sumptuous painter of Canadian landscape, especially the area around Magnetawan, Ontario. His cityscapes reflect his home on Toronto's Spadina Avenue. Rayner's work boldly ricochets from one concern to another, even within the same painting, though his inventions are united by his broad touch and spectacular sense of colour.

He has spent the last decade traversing the contemporary art scene, while earning and expanding on his graffiti writing practice under the pseudonym Mon Petit Chou. Paquette's thematic interests interrogate the transformation of culture that occurs when two or more economic, social or cultural realities collide.

A graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design University, Loree also completed a six-month residency at the Sachaqa Art Center in San Roque De Cumbaza in Peru. Loree works intuitively and expressively in oil on canvas. Her bold and somewhat absurd colour palette evokes seemingly contradictory emotions as the viewer is confronted with her familiar yet unsettling portraits. Vibrant, saturated colours are the background for abstracted figures, depicted with luxurious swathes of thick, visceral paint laid down with great speed, ultimately expressing a sense of introspection and of personal transformation.
