Andrew Rucklidge: The Fringes
April 3 – 25, 2009
Michael Gibson Gallery, London Ontario
There’s something about Andrew Rucklidge’s paintings…it’s their grand, otherworldly energy, the way they refer to something greater and the way you could keep looking at them for hours. They just feel incredibly modern and more importantly, they have a very modern authenticity about them, while also referring to the landscapes of Katsushika Hokusai among other references.
Although we wish Rucklidge would design for the theatre or contemporary dance – he could do great, forceful things with costume, sets and lighting, we’re sure – we do admire his work, which has now morphed into these rocky landscapes. It’s our favorite yet.
