SYLVIA TAIT | YESTERDAY AND TODAY

Sylvia Tait | Yesterday and Today
February 6 – 20, 2021
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver

Yesterday and Today, a new exhibition by acclaimed artist Sylvia Tait, celebrates the West Coast modernist's storied career and will feature early black and white mixed-media drawings from the artist's personal archives alongside new canvas and paper works.

Engaging with her past and present practice, Tait recalls the creative momentum and social upheaval of the 60's and 70's to trace parallels to our current times. Moved by the same formalist concerns and aesthetic principals that have defined her artistic signature, Tait re-interprets her monochromatic palette to explore new subtleties of tonal variation in dialogue with her long time interest in the evocative potential of colour block abstraction.

Deftly wielding influences and techniques collected and re-discovered from her expansive body of work, Tait's latest paintings swell with the fresh interplay of textual elements, recurring forms, gestural mark-making and textured surfaces. A chronicle of the artist's self-reflexive instinct and her return time and again to the act of reinvention, Yesterday and Today showcases a singular painter at the very height of her power.
