Luminous John Lander: Landscape, Portrait, and Still Life

September 29, 2018 - December 09, 2018

Reception: Sunday, October 14, 1pm

Oshawa born artist John Lander (1951-1992) created a body of work in prints, paintings, and wood cuts, that speaks to an intense encounter with life. From his earliest screen prints to his final paintings, Lander’s aesthetic combines high style, humour, saturated colour, and a kind of yearning.

Luminous John Lander includes work exhibited during Lander’s solo exhibition at the RMG in 1988, as well as prints and paintings never previously exhibited, from several private collections.
