Art Now! Speakers' Series: Sandy Plotnikoff
Over the course of his career Sandy Plotnikoff’s work has demonstrated his interest in transcending the expected possibilities of a given material. The results have teased limits of humour and absurdity (with his early work with such mundane objects as tube socks and baseball caps) or the sublime (with his shockingly beautiful recent holographic foil works). Plotnikoff’s work has been shown widely including at the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the National Gallery of Canada, as well as in exhibitions in the United States, the Netherlands, and France. Plotnikoff is represented by Paul Petro Contemporary Art.
The Fall 2015 Art Now Spekers' Series is organized and curated by Professor Jason Hallows as a component of ongoing academic offerings in the Department of Visual Arts at Western University. The Series is generously supported by The Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
