Greg Payce: Illusions at the Gardiner Museum
The Gardiner Museum will celebrate the New Year by recognizing Canadian ceramic artist Greg Payce with a solo exhibition. Greg Payce: Illusions (February 2 - May 6 2012) features the signature ceramic installations that elevated Payce to superstar status in the ceramics community and brought him to the attention of the contemporary art world, as well as his more recent large scale lenticular photographs and video works. Payce’s work is steeped in history and also very contemporary. Technically brilliant, it surprises and delights by playing with our perceptions.
Greg Payce: Illusions is the first exhibition to be presented by the Gardiner Museum under the auspices of the Raphael Yu Centre of Canadian Ceramics. The Yu Centre is a virtual destination accessible via the Gardiner Museum’s web site, (www.gardinermuseum.com) which was created to celebrate Canadian ceramic art and artists.
