Zachari Logan

New Art Projects

Through drawing, and installation practices, Contemporary Canadian Artist Zachari Logan explores the intersections between masculinity, identity, memory and place. Previous work related to Logan’s current practice involved the investigation of his body as singular site of exploration. In recent work, his body remains a catalyst, but no longer the sole focus. Employing a strategy of visual quotation, mined from place and experience, Logan re-wilds his body as a queer embodiment of nature. This narrative shift employs both empirical explorations of landscape and overlapping art-historic motifs. Engaging both epic-scale and stylistically-historic techniques, Logan’s meticulous drawings evolve a visual language which speaks to the metaphoric as well as the metaphysical.
