The End is a happy beginning for the Canadian artist collective Orange/Brown (Lance Blomgren, Anthony Burnham, Joey Dubuc, Justin Stephens).
O/B has assembled an international roster of collaborating artists hailing from Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, LA, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to tackle the problem of "the end," to put to paper the final moments, or the closing moments of some real or hypothetical chapter. These works on paper are the sandwich boards of our eschatological and apocalyptic imaginations, whether located in the person, political, historical, or absurd. They are the last pages of a novel, or the closing credits of a film. This is "the end" for Orange/Brown. We may very well make ends meet, or stare into the blinding light of our own demise, or drift into the sunset, over the hills, and into the sun.
