Abstract (English)

"Publication documenting conceptual works that reflect artist Gail Bourgeois' engagement with the Firestone Collection of Canadian Art - one of the country's most important collections of works by modernist artists such as Arthur Lismer, A.Y. Jackson, Edmund Alleyn and Anne Savage. Bourgeois' renderings in ink wash, wax crayon, graphite and watercolour are simultaneously organic and architectural, delicate and bold, and reveal her sophisticated understanding of composition. The artist draws inspiration from roots, rhizomes and mycelial networks found in nature, intermingled with themes such as connectivity, multiplicity and cartography found in A Thousand Plateaus (1980), the collaborative philosophical text authored by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, to produce works that cause a rupture in overarching narratives and serve as a departure point for new ways of thinking. Gail Bourgeois is a founding member of the feminist art space Powerhouse Gallery (La Centrale, Montréal), and has founded or formed part of a dozen artists' collectives. In English and French." -- Distributor's website.
