For decades, renowned Canadian artist Gathie Falk has captivated the imagination fo the public. Her art reveals the extraordinary in the ordinary, the magic in the everyday, and the witty/surreal/poignant juxtapositions of the familar objects and sights -- such as apples, shoes, chairs, clothing, gardens, sidewalks, night skies and pieces of water.
A wealth of 100 images -- 55 of them in full colour -- ad six essays reveal the significant threads in Falk's career: her ground-brekaing installations, ceramic sculptures and performance art of the 1960s and 1970s, and her acclaimed paintings and sculptures of the past twenty years.
Award-winning writer Robin Laurence looks at Falk's life and work in a major biographical essay that is both engaging and enlightening. Bruce Grenville and Ian Thom of the Vancouver Art Gallery, Mayo Graham of the National Gallery of Canada and noted critic Sarah Milroy contribute shorter essays that illuminate significant works.
This book was published in partnership with the Vancouver Art Gallery.
