Originally from Victoria, BC, Jeff Ladouceur is a prominent figure within Canada’s tradition of contemporary drawing. His world is populated by a slowly morphing cast of old-timey comic-inspired characters: droopy elephants, big-nosed salesmen, and bubble babies rendered with a dizzying level of detail. He has shown internationally for many years, including solo shows at Richard Heller, Los Angeles; Galerie Vallois, Paris and group exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery; Maison Particuliere Art Center, Brussels; The Hole, New York; Museo de la Cuidad de Mexico, Mexico City; and FRAC, Paris, among others. He is represented by ZieherSmith, New York. He primarily divides his time between Vancouver and New York.
This is Ladouceur’s first solo exhibition with a Canadian art museum and will be the largest number of works shown in one institution to date. A book, which includes a written piece by renowned Canadian author Sheila Heti, coincides with this exhibition.
