ZACHARI LOGAN "FANTASY FLOWER" PAINTING, 2019
Zachari Logan (b. 1980) is a Canadian artist whose richly-detailed works have drawn international recognition and acclaim. Logan first established his reputation with his nude self-portraits and hyper-realistic renditions of flora and fauna. Through these often large-scale drawings and installations, Logan explores themes of masculinity, identity, memory, queerness, and nature.
Logan's interest in nature is manifested in many forms; from large-scale hand-drawn wall coverings of elegant forests abundant with delicate plant life, to unadorned renderings of his own nude body, and almost sci-fi amalgamations of human/flora/fauna.
Depictions of plant life from Dutch and Flemish tapestries have heavily inspired Logan's practice. Throughout much of art history, depictions of plants in the visual and decorative arts were signifiers of innocence, death, sexuality, and more.
Logan's own plant-portraits infuse memory and meaning with his broad art history vocabulary. While travelling, Logan photographs plants that remind him of his home and those that are completely alien to him, cataloging the interconnection and variety of natural forms.
"Fantasy Flower No.5" exemplifies Logan's intricate aesthetic, painstakingly realized and approaching hyper-realism. Meticulous and richly colored, this ephemeral flower grouping teeters between the natural world's duality of fragility/strength and overt/concealed sexuality. While this painting recalls the vanitas paintings and floral portraits of the Dutch Golden Age, it is worth pointing out the sexuality of flowers was only theorized at the end of the 17th century in England and Germany.
Logan holds a BA and MFA from the University of Saskatchewan. He was awarded the Lieutenant Governor's Award Emerging Artist Award in 2014. Logan's work has been shown in solo and group shows across North American and Europe. Institutions including the National Gallery of Canada hold his work in their permanent collections.
