Referencing the poem by Wordsworth in which he sets forth the classic opposition between nature and culture, Mahon presents four Canadian artists whose engaging and often lyrical work embodies the fusion and collision of nature and culture. These artists show painting as a language capable of addressing ideas concerning space and landscape through painterly means that propose the mutual agency of human culture and the "ground" that surrounds it. Adopting the metaphor of marking lines upon the road, the exhibition proposes a space for painting where inventive ideas about representation cross-pollinate to produce a complex yet continuous expanse. With work by Gerald Ferguson (Halifax), Ben Reeves (Victoria), Carmen Ruschiensky and Francine Savard (Montréal). In English and French
