    'Travis Shilling: Tyrannosaurus Clan'

    'Travis Shilling: Tyrannosaurus Clan'

    Tools

    Through Feb. 8

    Shilling, a Canadian Ojibwe painter, filmmaker and playwright — the second artist son of Aboriginal painter Arthur Shilling — was born in Rama, Ontario, and maintains a studio in Toronto. His works in the Burlington gallery may be a revelation to local art viewers. Shilling’s visions frequently depict animals — painted Ojibwe style — at odds with humans who seem blithely bent on destruction. For example, an outsize bird perches on a backhoe that’s digging a channel for a pipeline; a fish hovers alongside an oil rig in the sea. Shilling’s juxtaposition of graphical, vibrant native symbology and darkly impressionistic scenes is jarring — in a good way. Trained in native and contemporary arts, he wields both to address some of the sad consequences of imbalance in the modern world. at BCA Center in Burlington (map).
