Toronto artist Derek Sullivan, whose commission and exhibition Albatross Omnibus is currently on view at The Power Plant, discusses his practice. Using artists' books, drawing, sculpture, and various ephemeral projects, Sullivan draws upon overlapping histories of modernist design, abstraction and conceptual art in his acclaimed body of work.
Sullivan has participated in numerous group exhibitions internationally, including Dedicated to you, but you weren’t listening (2005) and We Can Do This Now (2006) at The Power Plant. Recent solo exhibitions include We May Be Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants But Some Of Us Are Looking At The Stars at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge (2008) and It is more difficult to hit a moving target at the University of Waterloo Art Gallery (2010). He is represented by Jessica Bradley Art + Projects, Toronto.
