Tony Tascona

Tony Tascona was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba in 1926. At the age of twenty, after a brief stint in the army, he enrolled as a diploma student at the Winnipeg School of Art, where he graduated in 1950. His style was fresh – rich with glazes and impastos, and bold with diverse surface textures and open compositions. The resulting work was loose and expressionistic. At the age of twenty-eight, Tascona had his first exhibition in the Spring Show at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. In the years to follow he exhibited frequently in both group and solo shows.

To support himself and his art-making Tascona took a job with Canadian Aerospace Industries and, later, with Trans-Canada Airlines (now Air Canada). It was here in these industrial environments that Tascona became interested in plastics, metals, and lacquers: the synthetic materials and industrial products that went on to inform his work. As he commented: “I don’t buy this business of being in the mood. You create it simply by starting to work. You draw on your own resources, all your experiences” (in Rosalie Woloski, No Matter If You Fail, Just Trying Is Success, 1974).

Tascona explored and exploited the manipulative possibilities of industrial materials, appropriating their visual and practical elements and combining them with a graphic sensibility. He worked with brilliantly coloured printer’s inks, including fiery reds, acidic purples, and lucid greens.

In 1962 Tascona relocated to Montreal, meeting Guido Molinari and Claude Tousignant, whose hard-edge colour painting intersected with his own interest in geometric work. His work moved away from its dense, organic nature to a more crisp definition of space. Lacquered forms took shape on the slick surfaces of aluminum with clean lines and resonating colours. After two years in Montreal, Tascona returned to Winnipeg and began to simplify his compositions, aiming at absolute control of forms. He continued his exploration of shape and space on into the 1970s, introducing sculpture, and diverging only to resurrect and reintroduce shapes as modified, simplified, or refined variations of the absolute form.

Tascona continued to exhibit throughout the 1980s. He sat on the Board of Trustees at the National Gallery of Canada from 1997 to 1999. He lived and worked in Winnipeg until his death in 2006.

Deborah Danelley

Early on in my career I was introduced to the philosophical and aesthetic Japanese concepts of “wabi” and “sabi”. A strong architectural influence in my life exposed me to “modernism”. The combination of these two sensibilities is very much what I feel my art reflects.

Wabi Sabi is evident in the mindful approach I take not only to life but also to my art practice. It can simply be defined as the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete, the beauty of things humble and modest, and the beauty of things unconventional.

The aspects of Modernism that I have adopted are the abstract non-representational ideals of beauty, the idea that less is more, surface characteristics that are seamless, polished and clean, and a geometric organization of form.

Put these two aesthetics together and you are getting close to understanding my work. The glue that holds these together, hopefully, is a maturity in knowing myself, understanding the materials and trusting that the end result will be able to communicate the meaning and essence of the work.

Although I came from a strong printmaking background which will always be my first love, throughout my career I have been intuitively drawn to the physicality of materials. Over the years this has led to experimentation with repurposing common or found materials: wood, metal, tea bags, and books. I enjoy the idea of pushing the concept of what defines the usage of certain materials but the end result still has to be something that is aesthetically appealing as well as conceptually informed.

From rich, dark etchings, to earthy multilayered tea collages, the deconstruction of discarded books in my latest work,  as well as the ‘wall‘ series reflecting the spectacular and endless state of timelessness depicted in the architectural decay of Havana –  I believe you will see work although diverse, that is inspired and created by a single artistic vision.
