Roy Arden is well known for his austere photographs of Vancouver’s cityscape. His solo exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery shed light on the other aspect of his practice which is centred on found images, collage and the archive. Entitled UNDERTHESUN, the exhibition commanded all three of the Contemporary Art Gallery’s exhibition spaces, including its two galleries and the windows vitrines and a pictorial artist’s publication was produced. The exhibition included works in multiple media including; drawing, painting, collage and digital collage, video and sculpture.

Whether in his online work, artist’s blog and digital collage or his intimate handmade collages, Arden ‘s incessant digging through the image archive always seems focused on finding the root causes for our present condition. Arden’s subject as always is history and specifically, modernity. His recent adventure with multiple media seems like a search for new diagnostic tools that can offer him insights that could not be revealed through photography alone.

UNDERTHESUN, an artist publication by Roy Arden. was produced as part of his solo exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery, the publication documents the majority of the nearly one hundred works on view. It serves as a representation and record of the exhibition, as well as provides the artist with an opportunity to formally reconsider the excess of images, his reasons for selecting them and their relational context. Published on the occasion of the exhibition Roy Arden UNDERTHESUN at the CAG, January 28 to March 27, 2011. Photography by Scott Massey. Design Roy Arden and Mark Timmings.

Mimicking commercial advertising layouts, Arden's design is a cacophony of colour and image. The publication has a refined newspaper-like quality. Printed on large broadsheets folded down to loose sheets, each page opens into individual collage posters.

This publication was made possible with support from the City of Vancouver's 125th Anniversary Grants Program. The exhibition was sponsored by The Hamber Foundation.
