All is Unmentionable, Up in the Air: Eli Bornowsky

Eli Bornowsky

November 21, 2014 to January 18, 2015

Eli Bornowsky has been practicing as an artist in Vancouver over the past decade, and has accomplished an impressive and diverse body of abstract paintings. This exhibition features a number of large canvas ‘doubles’ which mirror each other with their almost-but-not-quite identical forms. A new suite of works on paper is presented, as well as a selection of works from the City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection. Bornowsky explores the polyrhythmic textures of landscape, Renaissance painting, the artist’s studio, colour, Abstract Expressionism, doubles, and Cubism. Accompanying this exhibition is an artist book of the same title, published by the Burnaby Art Gallery.
