Circular Logic, 2009

(acrylic on canvas, re-purposed library display), exhibited in the library adjacent to Cambridge Galleries, Cambridge ON.

A collection of 27 books, whose cover design features the use of an arrow to illustrate the abstract concepts contained withing the pages, are replicated on canvas. The book paintings are arranged within a system of modular glass cubes chosen in response to the new releases display at the central branch of the Cambridge Libraries. The arrows delineate a circuitous path through the structure of the cube, sometimes pointing towards or away from their literary counterparts.   Taken individually, each of the selections confers  a level of authority within a specific field of knowledge or expertise. Collectively however, the pairings suggest the possibility for dialogue, debate, disagreement, and ideally collaboration.
