For this exhibition of paintings by Grant McConnell the artwork is derived from an ongoing investigation into the work of Diego Velasquez* – particularly his royal portraits. McConnell positions Velasquez’s subjects within a Canadian historical context. Canada, in all its crude beauty, becomes the new ground for these royal figures, who are given new purpose in the colonies. – MJM&AG
