David Acheson at Chris Cutts Gallery - N. Post June 19/04

The meticulously fabricated tree in full bloom inside Christopher Cutts Gallery is by the ever-theatrical sculptor David Acheson who never skimps on craftsmanship or sardonic punch. Some may remember his earlier works have included a near perfect sculpture of a bear-shaped honey jar made to the scale of an actual baby cub, and gigantic ten-foot tall toddlers constructed out of bonemeal, epoxy and foam. Acheson’s faux-tree is one of a forest of 50 he has built over the years, though this is the first time one has been constructed inside a gallery, making this art not a prop. Generally, his artificial garden folly is commissioned by set designers or shopping mall planners looking for paradise underneath the fluorescent lights. Acheson has simply taken the nature vs. man-made nexus a few steps further by adding a swing to hold a video loop which tells a heartbreaking two-clip story — clip 1 is of a real tree being cut down to make way for a front yard driveway, and clip 2 is the artist at work building yet another Stepford tree in the produce section at Loblaws. --CO

David Acheson’s not is not runs until July 3 at Christopher Cutts Gallery 21 Morrow Avenue. $22,000.
