Zachari Logan is a Canadian artist working mainly in drawing, ceramics and installation practices.
His work has been exhibited widely, in group and solo exhibitions throughout North America, Europe and Asia, including: Athens, Amsterdam, Atlanta, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Cincinnati, Chicago, Calgary, Edmonton, Grenoble, Kochi, Halifax, London, Los Angeles, Miami, Milan, Montreal, New York, Ottawa, Regina, Paris, Seattle, Tampa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Verona, Vienna and Yonkers.
Through large-scale drawing, ceramics and installation practices, Zachari Logan evolves a visual language that explores the intersections between masculinity, identity, memory and place. In previous work related to his current practice, Logan investigated his own body as exclusive site of exploration. In recent works, Logan’s body remains a catalyst, but no longer the sole focus. Employing a strategy of visual quotation, mined from place and experience, Logan re-wilds his body as a queer embodiment of nature. This narrative shift engages ideas of beauty, empirical explorations of landscape and overlapping art-historic motifs.
Works by Zachari Logan are found in private and public collections worldwide; including the National Gallery of Canada, Art Gallery of Ontario, Remai Modern, Leslie-Lohman Museum (NYC), McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Mackenzie Art Gallery, Scarfone Hartley Gallery: University of Tampa, Toronto Dominion (TD Trust) and Cadillac Fairview among others.
