Spanning a period of nearly twenty years, nowhere if not here presents a comprehensive cross-section of the work of contemporary Canadian artist Will Gorlitz. Through a rigourous painting practice, Gorlitz has examined a range of iconographic subjects. His choice of subjects—as seen in his Road Paintings, Numerals, and Not Everyone series— broadly evoke considerations of place, both within the internal context of the painting but also in terms of geographic, social, and theoretical references. To examine the practice of Will Gorlitz is to carefully consider the specific purpose of representation, presentation, and interpretation in the world of images and image-making.
