This sketchbook and catalogue publication accompanies an exhibition that celebrates the poignantly playful multimedia practice of Canadian artist Russell Yuristy, focusing mainly on the dynamic period between 1970 and 1990. Throughout this time, Yuristy crafted a whimsical portrait of the natural world, rural culture and his place in both; emerging as one of the most unique Canadian anti-establishment artists. This publication features a curatorial essay by Catherine Sinclair, an artist profile, 14 pages of Yuristy’s fantastical ink drawings, and 40 blank pages to create your own drawings in the back of this book.
