Rolling Stones film screenings on Friday 14 October at 8pm

Lost & Found is a series of previously unseen photographs of the Rolling Stones taken in April of 1965. Denis Cahill was in a Montreal hotel room with his camera when the English language TV station CFCF interviewed the Stones. It was their first North American tour with Canadian dates in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and London before heading to New York City for rehearsals for the Ed Sullivan Show.

In conjunction with this exhibit, NAC is presenting a screening of Stones films on Friday night. It’ll include the CFCF interview, Charlie is My Darling (a documentary of the 65 Stones tour of Ireland), and CS Blues (a documentary of the 72 Stones tour).

Reception Satruday 1 October at 7pm

As an artist, I aim to keep the mystery alive in my work as much as possible.  This is reflected not only in the questions I ask, but also by keeping an open mind about how we can engage the work.  This honesty leads to new discoveries, new accidents, and further engagement with the questions.

My work investigates the nuances of surveillance cameras, video clips, and day time television.  Through the use of recorded still images and close-ups we see beyond what the individual is intending to communicate and glimpse secrets and private truths.  Social, political, and psychological dramas gathered from the earlier sources are now performed on the canvas or paper.

As subtle derivatives become frozen through diligent and repetitive practice, the viewer is left with a voyeuristic statement on the edges of our condition.
