Four Chalkboards

September 15 – October 14, 1997

McPherson Library Gallery

This was the third solo exhibition of artist Brian Grison. The four chalkboards featured embody the principal theme in the artist’s works over the past ten years.

These drawings question authority, placing your onus on the viewer to construct meaning in the system of representation. Presented as chalkboard lessons, these drawings present knowledge as a maze with no reliable centre, with not final structure, and no encompassing solution.

Brian Grisson, 1997
