The Collective

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.
