Kim Adams Bruegel-Bosch Bus 1997-ongoing

The other day I found myself in Hamilton Ontario, so I decided to drop by The Art Gallery of Hamilton. The gallery has a couple of engaging shows on at the moment: Are you Experienced? and Art for a Century: 100 for the 100th. Here’s a smattering of what’s on display.


Hadley+Maxwell When That was This (detail) 2015


Dorian FitzGerald The Throne Room 2009

It’s amazing what you can do with a Photoshop filter, acrylic paint and a caulking gun.


Paterson Ewen Red Sea 1989

I can’t get enough of Paterson Ewen’s playful use of line, shape and colour.


Do Ho Suh: 348 West 22nd St, Apt A, New York, NY 10011 (bathroom) 2003

Do Ho Suh’s fabric environments are just brilliant.


Edward Burtynsky Ferrous Bushing No 18 (detail) 1997

One of Burtynsky’s manufactured landscapes was paired with this wonderful Thomson below. The two played very well together.


Tom Thomson The Birch Grove Autumn 1915-1916


James Tissot Croquet 1878

Near the end of my tour (to my surprise) I came across this Tissot. Nice building with a sweet curatorial flare, I’ll definitely be back.
