AGM 2019

April 27 2019 / 10:00am - 11:30am

You are invited to the Comox Valley Art Gallery’s Annual General Meeting at the Comox Valley Art Gallery. We look forward to sharing info and memories from our highly-eventful 2018 year. Join us after for food and drinks, and for the presentation of the Nonny Milne Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Arts. This year’s recipient: Robert Moon.
 


 

Robert Moon

My art is deeply personal and cannot withstand a great deal of exposure and all the attention from the galleries and students seemed to erode my concentration and diluted my creativity. I decided to withdraw from the gallery scene and become the world’s most famous unknown artist. I stopped trying to sell my art and decided to become an experimental artist un-tethered to the economics of selling art. This allowed me to branch out and try new things without the demands that the gallery scene imposes on artists. While it was a thrill to have my work purchased, the excitement pales in comparison to the immense pleasure that comes from the making of the art. I have opted to the ancient Chinese model where, as I understand it, the artist is allowed to do art when he has made a successful contribution to his community and has amassed enough wealth to be free of all restrictions and influences and is able to devote his time exclusively to his art.
