Cette œuvre s’inscrit dans la continuité d’American Collection Painting, une série par laquelle l’artiste cherchait à mettre en parallèle des images d’intérieurs contemporains avec l’histoire de la peinture d’intérieurs. Précisément, le titre fait allusion à la peinture flamande du 17e siècle prenant pour thèmes les galeries et les collections – à ces peintures qui servaient de catalogues aux vastes collections d’œuvres d’art que possédait le sujet. Plus généralement, ces peintures servent d’archives à l’époque contemporaine, à ses lieux, ses soucis esthétiques, ses valeurs, ses marchés, etc.
Notice biographique
Brian Rideout makes pictures about pictures. In his work, he investigates contemporary images, from print and online sources, for their art-historical relevance, as a continuation of the history of painting and image production. Rideout’s works comprise a narrative of art, architecture, and object following an undulating cycle of definition, utility, and design, softly dramatizing the multiple registers that art has come to occupy and employ over time as a material thing wholly existing in the world. He is interested in art as document, decoration, ideological accessory, and technological or functional support. Rideout was the 2017 recipient of the Premier’s Awards for Excellence in the Arts. He studied at Georgian College (Barrie, ON) and has recently had solo exhibitions at MKG127, Parisian Laundry, AC Repair Co., and Georgian College. Recent group shows include Spring/Break Art Fair (New York), Art Toronto (Toronto), Unkempt at MAW (New York), Open House at Sleep Center (New York), The Agency of Acquaintances at the Clint Roenisch Gallery (Toronto), and Taking [a] part at Mercer Union (Toronto). His work can be found in the collections of TD Bank Group and Royal Bank of Canada (Toronto); National Bank of Canada (Montréal); Estée Lauder (New York); and PCI Developments Corp (Vancouver); as well as in many private collections.
