NTH (Chad VanGaalen Solo Art Show)

Composed of sculpture, painting, animation stills, and drawings, NTH is a sprawling cross-section of multidisciplinary artist Chad VanGaalen’s brain. Sculptures and musical instruments are pieced together from discarded scrap materials, objects found in nature, and things salvaged from dumpsters.

Drawings could be torn from piles of sketch books, or excerpted from VanGaalen’s many animated video works. Together they show a restless polymath striving to make sense of the world across many forms of media — or in his words “finding natural peace in colour and form.”
