4 MAY to 16 JUNE 2018

Barbara Edwards Contemporary is pleased to present a retrospective exhibition by renowned artist, Tim Zuck. Zuck's dedicated approach to painting and drawing has produced a distinct and visually striking body of work. His images are deceptively simple on the surface; upon focused looking they reveal complex formal relationships that underscore the process of perception. Landscape, still life, abstraction, and the human figure have been the focus of his investigations. Often, his works will hover between categories, subtly examining the codes of representation.

Zuck earned a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. He has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, including the internationally touring Tim Zuck: Learning to Talk (2002-3) and Tim Zuck: Still Life in Landscape (1997-8). His works have been exhibited at the MacLaren Art Centre, Barrie; Museum of Contemporary Art Calgary; Art Gallery of Ontario; Art Gallery of Nova Scotia; Yukon Arts Centre Gallery, Whitehorse; Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff; Back Sang Gallery, Seoul, Korea; Expo '93, Taejon, Korea and the Canadian Embassy Art Gallery, Tokyo, Japan.

Zuck's works are held in numerous private collections and public institutions including the National Gallery of Canada, Canada Council Art Bank, Glenbow Museum, University of Lethbridge, McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Vancouver Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Museum London, and Art Gallery of Ontario.
