February 17 - March 25, 2017
Dean's You Seen One You Seen Em All is comprised of works in ink on paper which derive from recent sketch books.The subject matter in these drawings plays on the tension between the ordinary and mythical, the everyday and classical, the dreamworld of the psyche and the matters of the soul.
Tom Dean was born in Markdale, Ontario (1947) and settled in Montréal in the late 1960s, where he studied visual art at Sir George Williams University (now Concordia University). In 1976 Dean moved to Toronto. In 1999 Dean represented Canada at the Venice Biennale and was a recipient of the Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts in 2001. Permanent collections include the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal and the Musée des beaux arts de Montréal.
