Andrew Dadson. Cuneiform. Vancouver: Presentation House Gallery, 2015.
19.5 x 13.5 cm
Cuneiform; Lynn Valley #10, by Andrew Dadson, is the latest installment in the Lynn Valley series of artist-designed publications. Noted for his photography, landscape interventions, and recent series of luscious, aggressively impastoed abstract paintings, Vancouver-based artist Andrew Dadson has gained a considerable following for a practice that marries conceptualism with expressionism in unique and provocative dialogues. Dadson’s Cuneiform (2013 – ongoing) is a compendium of photographs taken on the streets and back alleys of Vancouver and Los Angeles that depict the adhesive substrate of signs missing from the exterior walls of buildings. - Presentation House Gallery
