Zachari Logan "Wild Man 3"

Zachari Logan “Wild Man 3”

I haven’t got a ton of advance information on what artist Zachari Logan has planned, but for the next six weeks or so there will be two exhibitions of his work on display in Regina.

A recent graduate of the University of Saskatchewan’s Master of Fine Arts program, Logan works primarily in drawing, ceramics and installation. Masculinity, identity, nature, memory and place are some of themes he favours in his art.

This spring, Logan did a three-month residency at the International Studio & Curatorial Program in Brooklyn. The residency was arranged through funding support from Creative Saskatchewan and the MacKenzie Art Gallery.

Logan’s first exhibition, Wunderkammer, opens tonight at Slate Gallery. There’s a reception from 4-7 p.m., and the work that’s on display will apparently explore concepts of queerness and otherworldliness. Wunderkammer runs at Slate until Nov. 7.

Logan’s second exhibition is called A Natural History of Unnatural Things. It features pastel drawings such as the one depicted above that blend human figures and vegetation to examine our relationship with nature. The show runs from Oct. 15-Nov. 27, and there will be an artist talk and reception Oct. 21 at 7 p.m.

I suspect at some point we’ll have a review of Logan’s work in Prairie Dog, so stay tuned.
