Eclectic Gallery hosts Vancouver artist Taralee Guild’s exciting exhibition Airstreams from June 16 to July 19.

Guild’s paintings are based on photographs of Airstream, Bowlus and Spartan polished aluminum trailers. Derived from aeronautical design, these mid-20th century companies built streamlined riveted aluminum shells evoking the golden age of flight for the new North American leisure travel industry.

Guild’s painting techniques create an object-ground relationship similar to animal mimicry, where the trailer hides in its surroundings by mirroring it. Given the degree of distortion, the metallic surface becomes an arena of forms that slip away from recognition. It’s a complicated pictorial space where abstraction exists within realism.

 

Eclectic Gallery is located at 2170 Oak Bay Ave. Go to eclecticgallery.ca for more information.
