One thing the pandemic has taught us is that there is a delicate interdependence in our relationships with others and our surroundings. Our routines, interactions with the environment, family and friends, leisure time — and time itself — have all been upended. We feel some things too much, while other things evade us. Zachari Logan’s most recent work delights in this shake up. Flowers and plant debris swirl against the backdrop of the sky. Ghost Meadows, Logan’s first major solo exhibition in his hometown of Saskatoon, continues the artist’s interest in the unkempt flora that persist and thrive in ditches and sidewalk cracks. In his exquisite drawings and hand-built ceramics, he refuses to differentiate between the wild and the cultivated, the strange and the familiar, immersing viewers in a field of beauty and desire that celebrates the natural world in all its forms.
