About the artist:
Bodo Pfeifer B. German, 1936: "The most watched of the young hard-edge painters in the city (Vancouver, Canada) were Bodo Pfeifer and Brian Fisher. Pfeifer had studied in Montréal and his native Germany before studying at the Vancouver School of Art with Roy Kiyooka and Jack Shadbolt. By the time of Canada 101, an exhibition of Canadian art held at the Edinburgh International Festival in 1968, the Musée des Beaux Arts had purchased one of his paintings. Pfeifer's ideas, as reported in Vancouver Life on the eve of his 1967 exhibition at the Douglas Gallery, included the disposability of art – a widespread notion that was the ironic embrace of the increasing commodification of art. "I am opposed to the idea of precious paintings. Art should be lived with. Within ten years of stating this, Pfeifer himself turned his back on painting in favor of gardening. His hard-edge paintings, celebrated at the time, have made appearances in recent exhibitions about the sixties, but less is known of his other ideas, such as paintings consisting of optional modules, a notion taken up by B.C. Binning in 1970. Most remarkably, as Pfeifer's painting vocabulary became more "minimal," his notions of painting headed toward the psychedelic sensorium."
