March 30, 2012 – April 22, 2012
Opening reception / Friday March 30, 2012 / 6 – 10pm
COOPER COLE is pleased to welcome Canadian artist Mark DeLong to his ﬁrst exhibition with the gallery.
DeLong creates scenes which blur the line between abstraction and the representational. With a focus on color and composition, DeLong’s paintings and sculptures can be read in a variety of ways. His conceptual imagery and vibrant pallet allows the mind to wander and the viewer is invited to draw a narrative on their own accord.
Mark DeLong, born 1978 in New Brunswick, is a self taught artist working in a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, sculpture and video. His work has been displayed at Colette, Paris; Bee Studios, Tokyo; Spencer-Brownstone Gallery, New York; Abel Neue Kunst Gallery, Berlin; Perugi Art Contemporenea, Padova, Italy; Museum Of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto; LES Gallery, Vancouver; Little Cakes, New York; and COOPER COLE in Toronto. DeLong has collaborated with such artists as Paul Butler, Jason McLean, Jacob Gleeson, and Geoﬀrey Farmer. His work has been seen in Border Crossings and Canadian Art Magazine and he has published books with Nieves, Switzerland; Seems Books, and TV Books in New York. DeLong currently lives and works in Vancouver, Canada.
