Terence Gower

Terence Gower

Canada, 1965 Lives and works between New York, France and Mexico.

The desire to reexamine the notion of progress, a term corrupted by the excess of technological modernism, is fundamental in the work of Terence Gower. His work manifests dialogues between architecture and art by investigating the ideas of form, modernity, abstraction and the identity of the artist.

«For him, abstract forms can communicate abstract ideas more effectively than representative or pictorial ones.»

The interest of the artist revolves around how non-representational forms can convey meaning. For him, abstract forms can communicate abstract ideas more effectively than representative or pictorial ones. Gower uses a wide variety of media including video, sculpture, drawing, installation and architecture. The artist works on numerous projects simultaneously, which he develops over a period of several years. His most recent projects can be described as what Gower calls "curatorial installations" in which he combines video, sculpture, works of other artists and material from his archive. In this way, its facilities offer various points of access to the subject under study to the spectators."
