In response to Emily Carr's travels to remote locations and the ceramic
objects she produced for the tourist market, Vancouver-based artist Gareth Moore
travelled through Europe, North America and Asia to investigate sites-some dating
to prehistoric eras and others inhabited more recently-in which stone has a notable
significance. During his travels, Moore produced stone carvings for exchange or sale to
fellow travellers, as well as plein-air drawings incorporating found materials from the
sites he visited.
In Dialogue with Carr: Gareth Moore features a new work by Moore that includes objects and materials gathered during his journeys, as well as a selection of Emily Carr's ceramics, presented in relation to the specific physical structure of the gallery space.
Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Grant Arnold, Audain Curator of British Columbia Art.
