Andrew Grassie at The Rennie Collection in Vancouver, BC

Rennie Collection is pleased to present the first solo North American museum exhibition of Scottish artist Andrew Grassie on until January 26, 2013
A casual glance at one of Andrew Grassie's diminutive, hyper-realistic pictures, one might think they are viewing documentation photographs of an exhibition or of an artist's studio. A closer inspection reveals Grassie's works to be carefully constructed paintings made using egg tempera-based pigments, an antiquated medium known for its permanence - a remarkable juxtaposition to the fragility and disposability of photography.
To see the exhibition, go onto the website to book into one of the weekly tours.

Rennie Collection has evolved over a number of years to focus on works related to identity, social injustice, appropriation, painting and photography. Bob Rennie has garnered an international reputation as a dedicated collector, amassing one of the largest collections of contemporary art in Canada. In 2009, renovations were completed on the oldest building in Vancouver's Chinatown to display the collection to the public. Rennie Collection at Wing Sang holds two exhibitions a year with supporting catalogues and events.
