Taking its title from images in both artists' work, this exhibition uses the wood chopper as a metaphorical figure who 'clears a path' for those to come and the monkey as an emblem of the sense of loss and whimsy that is rarely discussed in Carr's work.

Emily Carr and Landon Mackenzie: Wood Chopper and the Monkey will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue that explores the complex relationship between the works of these two artists. The catalogue is published by the Vancouver Art Gallery and includes a text by the renowned Emily Carr scholar Gerta Moray, Art History professor at the University of Guelph.
