Entangled: Two Views on Contemporary Canadian Painting offers an insight into two distinctly different modes of painting that have come to dominate contemporary painting in the country. One such mode proposed the possibility of conceptual painting-a highly refined notion of painting that emerged from and returned to the idea. The second mode was an ambivalent proposition that valued actions and materials over ideas. This title traces the legacy of this debate by documenting the work of 32 artists who have been largely responsible for the strong revival that painting now enjoys in Canada. With work by artists from Halifax to Victoria and many places in between, the book offers a convincing survey of the lively exchanges that make painting relevant and meaningful today. The story of contemporary painting in Canada is constantly under revision, and for good reason-dynamic and influential art practices, wildly differing opinions, strongly held beliefs and high expectations make for a charged atmosphere in art schools, studios, and public and private galleries. Entangled includes the work of Gary Neil Kennedy, Gerald Ferguson, Jeffrey Spalding, Stephanie Aitken, Marvin Luvualu Antonio and Rebecca Brewer.
