The Contemporary Art Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition of Los Angeles based artist Matthew Monahan. On view from April 27 until June 30 2012, this will be the first solo exhibition of Monahan’s work in Canada. With the human figure as his subject, Monahan manipulates and distorts this classic motif into fragmented forms that recall ancient artifacts. Using a combination of materials reflective of contemporary culture, his work challenges the relationship between drawing and sculpture, while also bringing into question conventions of museum display.
