Winnipeg, Manitoba – September 30, 2013 – Gurevich Fine Art is pleased to announce that internationally recognized artist Diana Thorneycroft has joined the gallery. Thorneycroft is a Winnipeg based artist who has exhibited numerious bodies of work to great celebration across Canada, the United States and Europe, as well as in Moscow, Tokyo and Sydney.
Known for creating provocative and controversial photographs; Thorneycroft’s work challenges her audience’s viewing experience. She has turned to black humour and contemporary mass culture as props to stage investigations into what she calls humankind’s hopeless attraction to “spectacles of violence.”
Thorneycroft’s work has been the subject of radio documentaries and a CBC national documentary for television. Thorneycroft's photo-based exhibition, The Body, its lesson and camouflage was on an eight city tour from 2000 to 2002. A book under the same name was published.
She is the recipient of numerous awards including an Assistance to Visual Arts Long-term Grant from the Canada Council, several Senior Arts Grants from the Manitoba Arts Council and a Fleck Fellowship from the Banff Centre for the Arts.
Hogs and Horses, a collaboration between Thorneycroft and Michael Boss, will be her first exhibition at Gurevich Fine Art in October of 2014.
