TRISTRAM LANSDOWNE
Tristram Lansdowne situates his watercolor paintings of modern villas at the fulcrum point between aspects of an architecture that attracts us but does not welcome us. Working with aplomb under a most elegant surface he manipulates perspective and how an image unfolds to access spatial ambiguity, discontinuity, and the uncanny.Tristram Lansdowne is a Canadian artist whose watercolors, sculptures, installation and prints focus on themes related to landscape and architecture. Since graduating from the Ontario College of Art & Design with a BFA in 2007 he has exhibited across Canada and the U.S. Recent exhibitions include Contemporary Drawings from the National Gallery of Canada at the Mendel, Provisional Futures at the Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery, Empire of Dreams at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Contained at the Boston Centre for the Arts, and Half Master at Microscope Gallery in Brooklyn. He was a semi-finalist in the 2011 RBC Painting Competition and in 2013 his work was acquired by the National Gallery of Canada.
