CITY | Delineations: Marilyn Dyer & Gailan Ngan

On view until June 6

See bright paintings and sculptures that explore the tension between line and form. This exhibition brings together paintings by Marilyn Dyer and ceramic sculptures by Gailan Ngan.

Although generations and mediums apart, the artists both work on the West Coast of British Columbia and share an interest in the environment.

Many of Ngan’s clays and glazes are sourced from British Columbia. Her sculptures use materials from a wide spectrum of other natural sources including rocks, ash, and rare earth metals. Dyer’s paintings address humankind’s intrusion into nature. Many of her works on display are part of her “Bar-code series.” She paints a barcode, either implicit or explicit, into her landscapes to signal the commodification of icebergs, mountains, and oceans. She says there are price tags attached to these views. Combining sharp, mechanical edges with curvy organic forms, Dyer dissolves the genre conventions of landscape painting and modernist abstraction.

Echoing the bright colours of Dyer’s works, Gailan Ngan’s sculptures greet your eyes with bright, drippy glazes that give her sculptures personality. In her central sculpture “Double Hearing,” Ngan balances two solid shapes or “characters” on a thin, curvy ladder typical of children’s playground equipment. This placement highlights the contrast in materials and brings ceramics out of the glass display cases, encouraging a different way of seeing. Ngan’s ceramic practice subverts the conventions of fired clay forms and surface in West Coast naturalist ceramics. Her recent work emphasizes the role of the human body and its trace in the creation of clay vessels.

Book your visit to see this eye-catching exhibit, along with Mark Soo: Twilight at the Edge of Town (until June 6); Yam Lau: Hutong House (until May 30), and Art by Surrey Secondary School Students (until May 16).

Surrey Art Gallery is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays (4–7pm) or Saturdays (10am–3pm). Pre-book your visit by emailing artgallery@surrey.ca or calling 604-501-5566 (press 1).
