ABENDSTERN was an installation comprised of new work from Brendan French. The back wall had heavily textured drawing pages that develop into a grid pattern, while sitting on the floor were several piles of blank sheets of rice paper. On top of each stack of paper laid 3 inch thick slabs, comprised of steel shavings, sand, earth and plaster. Once installed, the book-like formations act as a quiet recording/reflection of life and experience through use of repetition, pattern, and substance.
BRENDAN FRENCH graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 1998. He currently lives in Banff, AB, where he works at the Banff Centre for the Arts as the Public Program Coordinator.
