Description

Close to the edge... contains seven essays and statements by Gerald Ferguson that define this important conceptual artist’s approach to his art and his times. Beginning with his first works in Halifax in the late 1960s and ending with his statement for his last exhibition, New Paintings — Landscapes, held in Toronto in 2009, Ferguson’s collected writings are a unique document in Canadian art history. Ferguson’s writings are accompanied by 20 plates of his key works.
