Oblique Trajectories is a survey exhibition of the work of artist Gary Lee-Nova. The exhibition presents works from a period spanning from 1965-2007, including large-scale paintings, sculpture, lithographic prints based on paper collages, silkscreen prints and digital collage. The exhibition explores Lee-Nova’s vast research on systems of colour, measurement, and language.

Gary Lee-Nova (b.1943, Toronto, ON) studied at the Vancouver School of Art and at Coventry College, England. An important figure in the West Coast Scene of the 1960s and early 1970s, he was a co-founder of Image Bank (a collaborative project with Michael Morris and Vincent Trasov), and active in the Sound Gallery (circa 1965), and Intermedia (1967-1972). Lee-Nova continues to work as an artist, creating single projects that often take years to execute. In 2018 he was named Professor Emeritus of the Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
