There is a Group Show at the Charles Scott Gallery on Granville Island that is worth taking in.

One of the artists, Thomas Glassford,  has managed to bring what’s old is new with his version of POP ART in the piece where he has assembled a variety of aluminum profiles into a multicoloured techno quilt like pattern.  The electric colours of anodized powder coating are vivid and bright … loved the architectural references.

The adjacent  sculpture is  made up of recycled light pendants, bowls and plates to form a floor to ceiling hanging tassel of found objects that just seem to fit together so perfectly.  These works are a playful cross of old /new – pop/folk … very clever and very striking.

On the other side of the room is a show of beautiful minimalist 3D compositions by Gabriel de la Mora.  Fine whimsical lines whisking in space.  At a closer look you will notice the anatomy of micro knots where the lines cross joining the pieces together and a faded undertone of light brown stain below.  There is a heevy jeevy feeling that may come over you once you realize the fine lines are actually human hair and  the faded stains that lie beneath is blood.  They have a fascinating appeal.

This show ends Oct. 24 and is worth the time … I quite enjoyed it.
