Known for his signature Canadian flag paintings, Charles Pachter investigates the changing nature of the self and the identity under contemporary conditions.
His entire production, which incorporates painting, sculpture, design and architecture, navigates the boundaries between the historical and the personal.
By combining icons such as the Queen, the maple leaf, the barn or the iconic moose, Pachter brings to our attention how such symbols have become intuitive landmarks for us, impacting the different ways in which we see ourselves, and how we perceive the world around us.
By exploring the ups and downs of patriotism, his works take on an quirky and singular third space between the two polarities.
The exhibition runs until March 15, 2018 at the Jutras Art Gallery in Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood.
