Opening Reception: Friday, February 10, 2006 at 7:00 pm
Instead of running amok with techniques borrowed from complicit historical figure painting, Trevor Lee Larson relies on a surreal approach to create numerous characterizations and combinations of himself and other simplistic beings. Molding a sensibility antithetical to conventions such as landscape or patterning, Larson forges forward with unabashed denial of technical skill beyond rudimentary visual ploys. Elements of chance explore construction of meaning and contribute to the reading of arbitrary relationships. The ensuing anarchic vision results in delusional and other-worldly abstraction.
Trevor Lee Larson is a fourth year student at the Emily Carr Institute. He frequently works with ideas of abundance to create psychotomimetic experiences within his paintings and auditory works. Larson is also the guitarist for Vancouver art-rock band The Book of Lists.
