Landon Mackenzie

Crossing Over, Why Cloud the Whites

 

September 10 - October 30, 2011

The exhibition brings together several large format canvases by Landon Mackenzie from two recent series called Neurocity and The Structures. Mackenzie’s paintings over the past decade involve her interests in the intersecting territories of cities, maps, waterways and dark space as nervous systems and the ongoing possibilities of using conventions of both landscape and abstraction to achieve her goals. Large and complex pieces, they are charged for effectiveness as optical and corporal experiences. Signals and wiring, neurons, cells, balloons, circles and squares, electric tower scaffolding, lily pads, ladders, railway tracking and filmstrips are recognizable but all disconnected from regular function.

Landon Mackenzie has built an impressive body of work and is known for her rigorous large-format paintings. Her work has been exhibited in over 100 exhibitions across Canada and internationally, and is collected by museums including the National Gallery of Canada, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and the Vancouver Art Gallery to name a few. Based in Vancouver, she is an influential educator at Emily Carr University. She studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD), Halifax (1972-1975), and Concordia University, Montreal (1976-1979) and has been honoured with numerous awards including the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts in 2017.
