November 27, 2014 – January 24, 2015
Opening: Thursday November 27th from 5 pm to 7:30 pm
Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new paintings and watercolours by emerging artist John Player. The culmination of John Player’s MFA work presents a restrained and detached view of surveillance culture. Endless defense from an unknown but constant threat is unveiled in appropriated images from mass media, newspapers and archives found largely on the Internet. In these works, dominant culture’s obsession with speed and control is confronted with the slow read of painting; the banality and distraction of technology here challenged by painterly care.

John Player will be present for the opening.

Kota Ezawa’s video LYAM 3D continues until January 24th, 2015 in the recently inaugurated PFOAC VIDEO ANNEX.
