Meet the Artist - Michael Snow: Objects of Vision

October 3, 2012, 7pm
Signy Eaton Gallery, Art Gallery of Ontario

The exhibition Objects of Vision is, as its title suggests, composed of objects, of sculptures. Michael Snow will discuss the aesthetics of these abstract works and how they differ from his work with images or representation.

"A pure sculptor," he explains, is "an artist who makes objects." He makes things to look through, look around, look along, look at, up, down, behind, and, at last, to look at yourself looking at things. All the works in the exhibition are Directors of Attention in the sense that their forms suggest the paths a spectator's eyes should take.
