It is the artist’s first solo exhibition in New York City. A recent transplant but already a native, Canal has exhibited widely in Europe and has since brought his unique vision stateside.
Munch Gallery presents several of Canal’s most recent photographs, as well as select objects and video work, highlighting the singleminded focus of his aesthetic over a range of media. His photographs are exercises in saturated color and geometric form, a glimpse of a fantastical reality populated by benevolent monsters, playful mashups of human, animal and muppet. His creations are simultaneously plastic pre-fab and meticulously handmade, eerie and familiar, a fever dream from childhood.
