The two pieces in this painted diptych by Craig Love are as enigmatic in their connections as is their placement in the large image and painting to which they once belonged. Love often works on a massive scale, cropping larger mural-like canvases into smaller pieces, which he defines by cutting into varying sizes and then placing into selected pairings. Through this process, Love confuses the value of one central reading or subject as his work is often in pieces.
Love is an artist who focuses his energies on painting, drawing, writing and bookmaking, often creating works that consist of chaotic colour, texture and imagery. He was trained in Fine Arts at both the University of Manitoba and Parsons School of Design at the New School for Social Research. He has shown in solo and group exhibitions internationally in places such as, Turkey, Germany, Australia, and the United States. Recent exhibitions include, O Cuckoo, curated by Wanda Koop at Library Gallery, Winnipeg and datumerrata, made in collaboration with William Eakin for Martha Street Studio, Winnipeg.
