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. Hosted by the Pitt International Gallery.

From humourous to the grotesque; the surreal tot he sublime, masks cover the range of human emotion and expression. They speak to the mortal and immortal in each of us and somehow represent the place where the two intersect."
