Phantoms of the Front Yard

PHANTOMS IN THE FRONT YARD is a touring art collective that brings together the work of Vancouver artists Michael Abraham, Jordan Bent, Jeremy Birnbaum, Chad Krowchuk, Marcus Macleod and Jay Senetchko boldly challenging the contemporary Canadian art scene, to revive the human subject as muse.

Figurative art has become the phantom of the fine art world, haunting both Modernism and Postmodernism with its ties to a classical tradition, refusing to be dismissed, ignored or forgotten.

Jeremiah Birnbaum is a practicing artist living and working in Vancouver, British Columbia.  Birnbaum studied at the Victoria College of Art (2001-2003) before earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Art from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2006.  Since graduating Birnbaum has exhibited extensively in both public and private galleries in Vancouver, British Columbia as well as Edmonton, Alberta and Halifax, Nova Scotia.  Birnbaum’s work is pro-dominantly black and white iconographic drawings exhibited within an installation format.  His work deconstructs and explores social constructs of hegemonic masculinity.  Birnbaum also works and exhibits within the Vancouver figurative collective, Phantoms in the Front Yard.
