Loop Gallery is pleased to announce exhibitions by OCAD Professor Maria Gabankova, entitled Labyrinth of the heART.
Labyrinth of the heART is a selection of drawings and paintings featured in a recently published book body broken body redeemed on Maria Gabankova's art. Published by Piquant Editions in Great Britain, this second volume in the VISIBILIA series of 'visual biographies' features over 50 full-colour reproductions of paintings and installations by Czech-born Canadian artist Maria Gabankova. Introduction by John Franklin.
The exhibition presents a large copy (94" x 108") of the Crucifixion panel of the Issenheim Altarpiece by Matthias Gr'newald, a work which Gabankova travelled to Colmar, Alsace, France to study at the Unterlinden Museum in 2003. She was commissioned by the Biblical Museum of Canada in Vancouver, B.C. to paint a copy of the Crucifixion panel, which she completed in the summer of 2007. The painting has had a profound influence on Gabankova's work and its spiritual content and expressive power relates to the themes of her previous work.
The exhibition's title pays homage to a literary allegory Labyrinth of the World and Paradise of the Heart by the 17th century Czech philosopher, educator and theologian Jan Amos Comenius.
