We are pleased to announce PMG artist MICHAEL VICKERS will be taking part in the eleventh C Magazine Contemporary Art Auction. Featuring works generously donated by more than 50 Canadian and international artists, the live auction takes place on Sunday, April 12th at Division Gallery in Toronto. Funds raised by the C Magazine Auction will assist C The Visual Arts Foundation in promoting the work of Canadian writers and artists through the publication of C Magazine and its programming for the coming year.
Michael Vickers’ work addresses the seductive and poetic qualities of form. Vacillating between painting, sculpture and installation, his modulating forms develop an autonomous and distinctive visual language. By relying on acts of negation, and investigating notions of inner and outer space, the compositions simultaneously convey familiarity and strangeness, weightlessness and mass, fragility and monumentality, completeness and the provisional. Vickers holds an MA in Contemporary and Modern Art History from the University of Toronto and a BA from the University of Ottawa. His work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions at Mercer Union (Toronto), Feature Contemporary Art Fair (Toronto) Patrick Mikhail Gallery (Ottawa), Truck Contemporary (Calgary) and the Queen’s Museum of Art (New York).
