Graham 'The O.R.' 22 by 30 2000
Neil Graham’s work is representative
of a Yukon tradition of illustrating people in daily life. In these drawings
he remembers a personal experience of having undergone surgery and being
hospitalized. His work has a quality reminiscent of social realism that
we can see in such Canadian artists as Miller Brittain and his “The Rummage
Sale,” 1940 (National Gallery of Canada). Like Brittain, Graham’s visual
storytelling is a way to communicate his interpretation of real life experiences.
