'I am drawn to spending a great deal of time with a blank surface--fabricating windows to impossible abstract worlds in flux as a response to contemporary anxieties as they relate to the increasingly technological age in which we live.'
- Lauren Pelc-McArthur
On November 14, EXCAVO will open Breakneck Glimmer, an exhibition of recent works by Toronto born, Montreal-based Artist, Lauren Pelc-McArthur.
For her first solo exhibition with the Gallery, Pelc-McArthur's practice continues to explore the relationship between fabricated dimensions and the experience of the viewer. Evoking the instability of the digital realm, Pelc-McArthur addresses a contemporary culture inundated with visual information via digital platforms and the subsequent distortion of how art is ultimately produced, disseminated and absorbed.
A 2018 RBC Painting Award Finalist and the 2019 Nancy Petry Foundation Award Winner for outstanding emerging Canadian Artist in the field of painting, Pelc-McArthur graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Ontario College of Art and Design University and is currently a Master of Fine Arts Candidate in Painting and Drawing at Concordia University.
