Sawchuk : Yard Work
Hurtig, Annette and Glowen, Ron. Sawchuk : Yard Work. Vancouver, BC: Western Front, 1988.
For curator Hurtig, Sawchuk's site-specific sculptures, incorporating found objects and the natural, often living material of his forested back yard, encompass postmodern critical strategies of appropriation, ironic juxtaposition and impermanence. Ron Glowen compares the artist's intentions and concerns with those of H.C. Westermann, David Nash, Edward Kienholz, Joseph Beuys and Jannis Kounellis. Biographical notes. 15 bibl. ref.
