The Synthetic Monolith is Robin Peck's translation of the structural language of architecture and engineering into the plastic, representational or synthetic language of sculpture. Peck refers to this work as Anti- Proun, that is, anti-utopian or anti-constructivist. He uses materials of architecture, of the contemporary built environment and the recycled detritus from the culture of consumerism in a different, synthetic, sculptural way.

Personal Mythology Is the temple a secret retreat within my own mind? Is the angel a myth of my own potential? The symbol waits for you – to find your own personal mythology. Humankind has always invented myths that search for inner perfection. Amidst the seeming chaos of our real world, mythology offers us hope for a greater potential. These works draw on symbols from classical and religious mythology, inventing new symbols for modern times.

Although working with brushstrokes for many years, it was while in Korea that Dancer became intrigued with the process of ink and brush drawing and its meditative preparation. This resulted in his first extended exploration of drawing: first with brush and ink, then, on his return to Vancouver, with pencil. Dancer's show at grunt consists of his drawings as well as diverse selection of his ceramic works.

The concept of assemblage and constructive art allows a partnership between the artist and a never-ending abundance of raw materials for which an urban society has no use following their initial function. This concept has proven to be a 'door' for Symonds through which to further explore his ideas.

Stan Lake's ceramic masks and figurines are well known to Vancouver gallery goers. Last year's successful Bric a Brac exhibition at the Montgomery and the Swan Leak Exhibition at the Old Pitt on Pender have been his only solo exhibitions in Vancouver to date. His inclusion in the last two False Face mask exhibitions have always drawn attention and exclamation. This time Lake takes us Beyond the Pale with his new series fo ceramic masks and figures.

Sammy Sammy, the legend of Hornby Island has come to grunt, despite his urgings that grunt should come to him. "Bring them all up here," he said, to his Place of the Woods where he creates his masterpieces of folk art. For those who have never heard of him, Sammy Sammy was a poet, philosopher, troubadour, cowboy who made sculptures out of reinforced concrete that were "suitable for decorations in flower beds or lawns." He worked with cement, moss, concrete, and paint (among other things) to create raw, stark pieces of folk art. http://www.firstvisionart.com/daina/sammy.html
