About The Cover

May – June 2017 About the Cover

By Jean Dykstra, May 4, 2017

The Montreal-based multi-media artist Charles Gagnon (1934-2003) worked in painting, film, and collage as well as photography, and his restless curiosity about philosophy, mathematics, and astronomy, among other subjects, informed his artistic practice. Gagnon produced Polaroid SX-70 original prints, gelatin-silver prints made with the Minox camera in the late 1970s, as well as landscapes, desert images, and cloud formations from the 1980s and ‘90s, including our cover image. A selection of his work will be on view from May 13 through June 17 at Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto.
