Parisian Laundry Press release


Parisian Laundry is thrilled to announce the opening of its Fall season 2012 with Hybrid Vigour, a new series of paintings by Rick Leong, and an on site installation in the gallery's Bunker space by Dean Baldwin.

Rick Leong's Hybrid Vigour is inspired by the artist's investigations in hybridity and the phenomenology of dusk and dawn, researched and developed during a series of canoe trips throughout Southern Ontario as well as during a recent artist's residency in Barcelona, Spain. Intrigued by the blurry moments between day and night, alert and at rest, Leong focused on the notion of hybridity as a combination of life forms to create something new. The artist translates this into his constructed landscapes where new meanings and reflections upon mythology come to the surface of his masterfully executed works on canvas, introducing the viewer into the artist's oneiric world.

A third generation Chinese-Canadian, Rick Leong obtained his MFA from Concordia University in 2007. His thesis work was immediately acquired by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts affirming his emerging practice. In 2008, he was a finalist in the Royal Bank of Canada's Painting Competition that toured at important venues such as The National Gallery of Canada, the Power Plant, Toronto and the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver. He will be the artist in residence at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design this coming fall. Leong's work is collected widely across Canada, including in the corporate collections of Senvest, the ALDO Group, the Canada Council Art Bank, The Department of Foreign Affairs, Caisse de dépôt et placements du Québec, Mouvement Desjardins, the collection prêt d'oeuvres d'art du Musée national des beaux arts du Québec and private collections throughout Canada and the United States.
