CURRENT EXHIBITION

TONY SCHERMAN

16 FEBRUARY to 17 MARCH 2018

Barbara Edwards Contemporary is pleased to present a solo exhibition by renowned Canadian artist, Tony Scherman. Known as one of the leading exponents of the encaustic medium, Scherman creates heavily built up wax surfaces that give the work a visceral edge and a remarkable sense of depth. This exhibition brings together a selection of paintings and works on paper.

Born in Toronto in 1950, Tony Scherman received an MA from the Royal College of Art in London in 1974. His work has been shown at solo and group exhibitions in North America, Europe and Asia. Scherman’s work is represented in many private and public collections, including the Los Angeles County Museum; Denver Museum of Art; San Diego Museum; High Museum Atlanta; Library of Congress, Washington; Contemporary Arts Society London; Arts Council of Great Britain; Pompidou Centre, Paris; F.R.A.C. Ile de France; Schlossmuseum Murnau, Germany; the Art Gallery of Ontario; Musée d’art contemporain; Montreal Museum of Fine Art and the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
