Join us to celebrate the release of Luke Ramsey's new book IS? Drawn and Quarterly, 2015) and enjoy a companion exhibit of a dozen prints from the book as well as original drawings. Slide show reading followed by signing and reception.

Intelligent Sentient? feels like an artifact from another time—a lost feature in OMNI magazine or the album booklet for a late-1970s Hawkwind record or perhaps a print version of Koyaanisqatsi. Beautiful, detailed filigreed drawings fold in on themselves and blossom out at the reader as time speeds up and contracts. A loose story is told that involves a society of giant people, strange art, and inexplicable scientific experiments utilizing nonexistent technology. Factories and tree houses teem with life, and the city nestles up against a landscape filled with dinosaurs, apes, and dragonflies living peacefully side by side.

Luke Ramsey co-founded the Islands Fold residency, exhibits internationally and works as a freelance illustrator for clients such as The New York Times. His practice includes collaboration, design, public art projects, and detailed freehand drawing. Luke currently lives on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Canada.
