Satellite Gallery presents a series of new “cubo-futurist-surrealist” paintings by senior Canadian artist Gordon Payne. Payne began painting in the 1950s, and was associated with the avant-garde scene in Vancouver during the 1960s. Born in 1933, he studied at Washington State College and the University of British Columbia. His work has been included in solo and group exhibitions at institutions such as the Vancouver Art Gallery, the University of British Columbia Fine Arts Gallery, the Charles H. Scott Gallery and the Burnaby Art Gallery. A long-time resident of Hornby Island, Payne has continued his painting practice, making abstractions informed by a dynamic relation to the natural world. This new body of work derives from sources as diverse as medieval illumination and the mid twentieth century French artist Bernard Réquichot.
Gordon Payne: New Works is curated by Scott Watson and organized by the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery.
