Satellite Sugar

From Fall 2016, Sugar Cube is being transformed into FotoFilmic//Pulp. Allowing Sugar Cube to continue showing a wide range of BC artists, the fine French sisters are generously hosting the Sugar Cube Satellite Gallery in East Vancouver. Each curated show celebrates the changing seasons in this shared accommodation; along with excellent apples (Fall 2016), divine pie, good music and damn fine coffee (always) we hope you’ll have the time to savour a feast for the eyes.

The first exhibition is from a series called Beautiful Destruction. Photographer Louis Helbig, an old Sugar Cube friend, grew up in Williams Lake and this series of photographs are sublime in their beauty, devastating in their scale and depiction. They may provide perspective to some pressing questions. Best answered with good coffee and excellent pie.

David Robinson will be our Artist in Residence later this year.

David Robinson is a highly respected Vancouver mixed media artist, working in ceramic, wood, metal, and gypsum. His sculptures depict stories from the earth, from folklore and mythology; often in conversation with modern subcultures. He holds a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, is an arts educator at The Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, and works from his Chinatown studio. His sculpture and installation works are exhibited in galleries in Canada and internationally. Robinson’s work is often incorporated in St. Marie Art + Design and Good Animal design group. He is currently assisting with Artist Link Leisure on this Summer 2015 installation for The Glastonbury Music Festival’s Shangri-La Interaction and Public Art Installation (http://www.shangrilaglastonbury.co.uk/)

He believes through creating and altering examples of natural beauty, he is both
exploring & envisioning the divinity of the organic world.

 GHOST:

Robinson’s great great great grandfather was the noted explorer and aristocrat John Fall Allison, of Allison’s Pass, British Columbia. He was the first European settler in the area and the founder of Vermillian Bluffs, which later became the town of Princeton, BC. Around 1920, John Falls son, the youngest of fourteen children, Alfred Stratton Allison took this white-tailed deer down, while hunting with his brothers, near the Similkameen Valley River. The rack was mounted at the Princeton Homestead, where it had remained as a prized family heirloom for almost a Century.

The sculpture was recreated from a 15 piece plaster mould, which was constructed over two years. Robinson was very enthusiastic to work with this treasured family artefact.  Honoured to beautify this iconic animal form by: “altering, queering and exhibiting the work with exaltation and representation of fragile beauty”.
