ARTIST MARK LAVER will discuss Saturday why he makes paintings of rural disasters.

CVAG invites public to Saturday talk about Re: Moved

Re: Moved is an exhibition of oil paintings by Victoria painter Mark Laver and industrial sculpture by Brent Bukowski of Kaslo.

The Comox Valley Art Gallery invites everyone to an artist’s talk on the closing day of the exhibition titled Re: Moved.

The talk takes place this Saturday from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the gallery. Admission is free or by donation.

Re: Moved is an exhibition of oil paintings by Victoria painter Mark Laver and industrial sculpture by Brent Bukowski of Kaslo.

Laver’s Rural Disasters series and Bukowski’s by products series together examine the visceral beauty of detritus, the artistic tradition of utilizing found objects and photographs, and the emotive and intellectual results of creating objects and images that evoke stillness out of that which once moved.

Laver holds a BA Double Major History in Art/Philosophy with Distinction from the University of Victoria.

He says of his work: “It is my goal to continue seeking the intuitive, mysterious starting point to each painting, allowing the work to evolve over time as I do.”

Laver has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in various galleries in B.C. and Ontario. His work can be found in the collection of the University of Victoria, Comox Valley Regional District, as well as private and public collections in Canada, the United States, Australia and Europe.
