DESCRIPTION

Vancouver figurative art collective Phantoms in the Front Yard are excited to present their latest 

show, Bloodlines.  The group features established Canadian artists Michael Abraham, Jeremiah 

Birnbaum, Jay Senetchko, Marcus Macleod, Paul Morstad, and  with curator Pennylane Shen.  For 

each exhibition, one group member has proposed a theme that the entire group then develops 

work around.  

 

The collaborative nature of this process continues to result in exciting work from exhibition to 

exhibition. In Bloodlines, the artists present a collection of deeply personal, carefully considered 

interpretations of their lineages, and how this affects their understanding of themselves and their 

place in Canadian culture. Investigating this theme unearthed distant connections to European and 

Slavic ancestry; requiring each member to negotiate previously held beliefs and memories of their 

origins. 

  

Apart from First Nations, everyone in the diverse country of Canada ultimately hails from 

somewhere else.  Because of this, the artists feel their personal reflections will be widely shared by 

others and are excited to welcome all to view the tangible results.
