Blanket Gallery recently became a neighbour to the Satellite Gallery space which houses outposts of the Helen and Morris Belkin Gallery, Presentation House and the Museum of Anthropology. Founded in 2005, the Gallery works with artists in all media including video, painting, installation and sculpture. Perhaps the most notable thread in their roll call of artists is their exploration of abstraction. Neil Campbell, a widely liked and influential instructor at Emily Carr University, creates paintings, often directly on the walls of the exhibition space that completely change the viewer’s relationship to the space and can be so dynamic they provoke an almost visceral reaction. Monique Mouton’s delicately painted nonrepresentational forms explore mark-making while Jeremy Hof and Alexis Teplin create abstract sculptures using paint as their raw material. Relatively recent additions to Blanket Gallery’s stable include First Nations artists Beau Dick and Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun whose recent work has referenced formline design in abstract forms.
