"Visual Arts Icons is an ongoing personal project in which I pay homage to and photographically reference icons from the visual arts, including painting, photography and cinema. Giving each the same degree of reverence, the work I reference ranges from highbrow classical art, such as the work of Leonardo da Vinci, to lowbrow kitsch and erotica, such as the work of Vladimir Tretchikoff and Tom of Finland." - John Dobson

Preview D/O.31 Visual Arts Icons on Wednesday June 26th from 12-6pm or join us for opening night on Thursday June 27th from 6-8pm at Disorder Gallery.

THREADS

D/O, Event, OpeningElliott Cole

Artist and arts educator, Dr. Mark Elliot-Ranken, comes to Disorder Gallery this June with his latest exhibition Threads.

“Suppose you came as an explorer into an unknown country with a language quite strange to you. In what circumstances would you say that the people there gave orders, understood them, rebelled against them and so on. The common behaviour of mankind is the system of reference by means of which we interpret an unknown language.”

- Ludwig Wittgenstein Philosophical Investigations

Wittgenstein's words inspired Mark Elliot-Ranken's latest series of abstracts, varied in scale, subject matter and in the unique approach of Mark's distinctive visual 'language'.

According to Mark “To do as Wittgenstein asks us to do, that is create or at least try and interpret that ‘unknown language’ especially in regard to the terrain of our inner world is to pick up the threads of our own self…that which makes ‘our-self’. Such a language is a tool for exploration rather than simply communication.”

Mark Elliot-Ranken's Threads opens Thursday June 6th from 6-8pm and runs through Saturday June 22nd at Disorder Gallery.
