Rodney Graham: Wet on Wet - My Late Early Styles

“It was rock that got me into painting. Being a painter is an extension of the performance idea that started with my interventions into serious music.” - Rodney Graham 1

“Of all the personae Rodney Graham has chosen or may yet choose to embody and explore, that of the ‘gifted amateur’ combines especially sensitive qualities of introspection and vulnerability – perhaps because the artist does not give it any heroic dimension, whereas he had previously accustomed us to tragicomic, gruesome or even absurd manifestations. Graham’s rigour and culture contain an intellectual curiosity that forces him to apprehend the structural foundations of the psyche and demands a mastery of the means that allow brilliant and lyrical variations on the inexhaustible theme of the Renaissance man.” - Josée Bélisle 2

Lisson Gallery is proud to present its upcoming exhibition with Canadian artist Rodney Graham, the sixth since his first exhibition at the gallery in 1990.
