Chris Cran EXPLORE (Book)
Chris Cran EXPLORE
Edited by Alexandra Pope
Essay by Nancy Tousley
CHRIS CRAN is known for his ability to play with illusion, for manipulating the perception of the viewer while exploring, fusing, and subverting traditional artistic genres as well as contemporary movements, from pop art to abstraction and photorealism.
His EXPLORE series of portraits, created for the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and featuring some of Canada’s greatest explorers past and present, invites viewers to become explorers of their own perceptions.
This limited-edition souvenir catalogue celebrates an exciting new exhibition of the EXPLORE series at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies and presents the stories of the remarkable individuals who have shaped, and continue to shape, our understanding of this land we call Canada, from Joseph-Elzéar Bernier, Henry Larsen, Alice E. Wilson and Vilhjalmur Stefansson to Roberta Bondar, Wade Davis and Louie Kamookak.
