In Prime Room, an installation by Dan Olson, minimal elements of drawing, painting, sculpture, text and architecture are combined to create a situation that is simultaneously simple and complex, specific and general, private and public, abstract and representation, self-contained and open ended. It is based on, and also a test of, the human ability to create something, or everything, from almost nothing.

"I find toys, particularly broken toys, a fascinating medium for assemblage both for their colour and shape and their connotation: hues so bright they become repellent, images so stylized they exclaim the mundane. Their use represents the invalid activities, or child's play, that has so addled serious society. I've tried to approach this series from several different sides, taking toys out of their original context and using htem almost as if they were bizarre humour, with whiffs of surrealism and a few light bulbs."

Trace elements is an exhibition of 14 artists currently working in assemblage in Vancouver. The past several years have seen a resurgence of collage/assemblage as a medium for artwork in this city. This form is one of the most popular art forms of this century. From early work by Duchamp and Schwitters to the collages of Motherwell, the combine paintings of Rauschenberg, the intricate boxes of Cornell collage/assemblage has been an important tool artists use to reflect the modern world. In Vancouver today a large group of artists involved work solely in this form and an overview of the wide range this work encompasses will be the focus of the exhibition.
