Bruce Stewart, Sorry for Any Inconvenience, 1991, acrylic on canvas.
Bruce Stewart: Salad Days In British Columbia
Teck Gallery, Vancouver
March 3 – May 3, 2007
These six paintings are selections from the exhibition Bruce Stewart: Salad Days in British Columbia, which was held at the SFU Gallery, Burnaby campus, from January 6 to March 3, 2007.
Bruce Stewart worked in the medical illustration department at the University of British Columbia for many years, eventually becoming the department head. Since the early 1970s, he has also been creating idiosyncratic paintings that are populated with his family members, friends, and the occasional famous British Columbian.
Stewart has recorded key landmarks in B.C.'s psycho-geographical history, from the Rockies to Long Beach, exploring the depths of who we were as a society in the post-war era, while reinterpreting the look of those now mythic, supposedly more innocent times.
