site[d] is a mixed media series exploring several locales in East Vancouver. Each site is recorded via hand-painted vignettes, legal identifiers and organic samples. They provide a lingering glimpse of the transitory state of the urban fabric. Each work suspends time and space revealing a landscape trapped between decay and growth. The pieces are elegantly presented, visually charged and effective. Inherent to the work are issues of land-development, reclamation, displacement and appropriation. Mair, as archivist, has fashioned a unique and revealing record of the traces generated by these temporary vacancies.
JG Mair has a background in painting and digital media production. His technically challenging work employs conceptually related elements to deliver multi-dimensional form and meaning. Mair lives and works in Vancouver, and has exhibited in Canada, the United States and Japan. He holds a BFA from the University of Victoria and a BEd (Art) from the University of British Columbia, and recently completed the Banff Artist in Residence Program at Banff Centre..
