Is this art?

Can we find examples of art (found modern art compositions) in our built surroundings?

About: David Stonhouse is an artist and educator based out of Treaty 6 territory Saskatoon. David is a founder and director of BAM art collective + project space, a curator on the board for Francis Morrison Library Gallery, and a Program Guide at the Remai Modern Art Museum.

David’s work deals primarily in painting. His work has been described as punked out formalism that is a combination of painting, sculpture, mixed media and installation. He is inspired by Saskatchewan’s culture of painting and the legacy of the Emma Lake Workshops. His work takes formalist painting, abstraction and minimalism and brashly turns it on its head; creating artworks that have oozing paint that leaps off the plane, psychedelic patterns, textural oddities and unexpected materials.
