Robert Kardosh, director/curator of Kardosh Projects at the Marion Scott Gallery, has assembled an eclectic collection of pieces from some of Canada’s most renowned artists. Mono/chrome is an exhibition that combines drawings, prints, paintings, photographs and sculptures from the 1960s to the present, featuring styles ranging from abstraction to high realism, all under the concept of monochromatism.

The first in a planned series of three exhibitions, this selection of multi-generational artists shows work that deviates from their familiar output. Intimate pieces from Yves Gaucher and Claude Tousignant, giants of Canadian abstraction, are juxtaposed with the Classical Realism of Mandy Boursicot’s drawings and the rawness of Vicky Marshall’s drawings. Ed Pien, celebrated for his dense, frenetic illustrations, is showing for the first time a series of photographs whose guttural response to landscape parallels never-before-seen monoprints by Attila Richard Lukacs. The presence of Parr and Jutai Toonoo removes from common discourse the pretense of Inuit as separate from contemporary art.

From this obscure selection of works unified by a monochromatic aesthetic, a dialogue emerges – effacing monetary value, status hierarchy and the categorization of art and artists. The show’s criterion removes limitations of binary thought in artistic practice, emphasizing the notion that artwork cannot be understood in terms of black and white but rather as shades of grey.
