Annelie McKenzie at the CB1 Gallery
CB1 Gallery is pleased to present our second solo exhibition of the work of LA-based artist Annelie McKenzie, Man in Canoe and Grizzly. The title comes from a 1960 painting of the same name by Canadian landscape artist Gladys Johnston. The exhibition will be on view from June 4 through July 16, 2016. A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, June 4, 2016.
In the party game Who’s Coming to Dinner? participants are asked to choose any number of dinner guests, famous or not, from any period in time, and imagine what the party would be like. Annelie McKenzie’s exhibition is her personal variation of that game, except that she has imagined a museum exhibition, choosing artists—famous or not, from any period in time–and they become her “Old Masters.”
McKenzie’s practice is not to create exact replicas of their works but is more interested in creating cover songs or valentines: loose impersonations made in order to ponder, revel in, decorate, and pile onto the imagery of the originals. Artists referred to in this collection include the women of Beaver Hall (a Canadian painting collective from the 1930s), Rosalie Filleul, Gladys Johnston, and the artist’s mother. The paintings in the exhibition are in playful dialogue with each other as they are mirrored, repeated, confirmed, and transformed.
