Cube kicks off 2018 with a focus on four of our perennially popular artists: Kristy Gordon, Eric Walker, and Russell Yuristy have been Cube mainstays since we opened 14 years ago, while Daphne Odjig joined our roster more recently. In those years, all have made an indelible mark on the art world, internationally.
Kristy Gordon’s roots are in Canada, but has since expanded her studies and her studio practice to New York City and is one of the most talked-about emerging artists of the decade.
The art world was saddened by the passing of Indigenous artist Daphne Odjig in 2017 at the age of 94. She remained a vibrant, engaged and dynamic artist right up to her final days.
The venerable Russell Yuristy – whose work can also be seen at the National Gallery of Canada – also maintains a dedicated creative practice that sees him take pencil or paintbrush in hand every day to create thoughtfully rendered interpretations of the natural world.
Eric Walker’s poetic paintings/assemblages have been commissioned for the OAG new gallery and his work from the Canadian Forces Artist Program will appear at the Canadian War Museum in February.
Cube is proud to present new and recent works by each of these fine artists. For more images, please visit — cubegallery.ca/exhibitions/2018_01_02_focus_on_four
