Vincent Sharp: From the Collection

24 Jan 2004 - 02 May 2004

Born in Toronto in 1937, Vincent Sharp was a self-taught painter who abandoned painting around 1966 and devoted himself to photography. By the mid-1970s, his work stood squarely within the social landscape movement that dominated a major part of Canadian photography in that decade. From the reflective surfaces used as a support for an amalgam of diverse images to austere still-life compositions, this exhibition covers 20 years of Sharp's photographic production.
