New Canadian Cabins

At the Art Gallery of Peterborough

Pulling from the visual ephemera Urquhart encountered through his time growing up and living in Southwestern Ontario, New Canadian Cabins reinvents and reimagines the cabin and its humble architecture designed for habitation, comfort, and recreation. Beginning as a single piece for the 2010 Ice Follies Festival in North Bay, the New Canadian Cabins series has grown and become a full body of work, a portion of which is presented here. On the series, Nida Home Doherty wrote: “In the fragmented compositions of brought-together, disparate objects, the work speaks of an underlying tension in an attempt to hold to, or reclaim, a sense of nationhood, a sense of self and home.” Article by Nida Home Doherty in London Yodeller

Aidan Urquhart has exhibited across Canada since the mid-1990’s and has work in the collections of the Canada Council Art Bank, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Museum London, the McIntosh Gallery-University of Western Ontario, St. Thomas-Elgin Art Centre , The National Archives-Ottawa as well as numerous private collections in Canada and the USA. He lives and works in London, Ontario.
