Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children
August 4-August 19, 2001
Guelph-based artist Jan Noestheden's work involves cutting large images out of aluminum, paiting them in flashy enamel colours, and mounting them 3" from the wall, producing a second image in shadow. His self-referential works portray the spectacled artist in a mileau of adsurdist scenery.Noetheden most recently exhibited in Swizzle's If I Could Read Your Mind group show, where he exhibited the work "Attempting to Perform a Mind Meld with Chicken." He has previously exhibited at the University of Regina, The Roque Gallery (St John's, NF) and MacDonald Stewart Art Centre (Guelph, ON). A consummate marketer as well as artist, Noestheden will be selling t-shirts, stickers and skateboard decks(!) at his Swizzle exhibition.
