Opening Reception: Thursday, September 8, 6-8pmCANADA is pleased to announce Bricks are Heavy, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Elizabeth McIntosh.”Known for her bold, colorful abstraction, Vancouver-based artist Elizabeth McIntosh has exhibited widely across Canada. Her paintings reside in the collections of the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Ontario, The National Gallery of Canada and the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.In the process of making this work the artist developed a new system that combines her longtime interests in pattern and geometry with personal narrative and elements from historical painting. Reminiscent of paper dolls in their state of unfolding, the paintings reference figuration through abstract sensibilities.Composed intuitively, they evoke forms from nature, like a late summer sunset or bites taken out of a leaf. Pictures are mirrored and flipped, a series of snapshots experienced vividly with the benefit of imagination, blown out colors, holes punched in realities and tents pitched in histories both recent and long ago. McIntosh positions painting on the edge of language, her exploration is a celebration of the medium and its lasting impact. Bricks are Heavy is McIntosh’s first solo exhibition in New York.

McIntosh holds a an MFA from Chelsea College of Art, London and a BFA from York University, Toronto. Her work has been included in exhibitions at VENUS, Los Angeles (2016); the Logan Centre, University of Chicago (2014); MOCCA, Toronto (2012) and the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver(2010).  She is featured in Vitamin P3: New Perspectives In Painting (Phaidon Books, 2016), a monograph of her work was published by ECU Press (2010), was the recipient of the 2013 VIVA Award and has been granted the Fogo Island Residency in 2017. Her works are held in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, Museé d’art Contemporain, Montreal, the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto and the Vancouver Art Gallery. McIntosh is an Associate Professor at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.”

Introducing the DL Stock Program



Instagram_stock program intro

Since 2006, It’s been a privilege making clothing worn by people such as yourself. As a mindful shopper, I truly appreciate any purchase of DANA LEE that has ever been made through my site or with my retail partners. Due to a growing family (my son Peter and more recently my daughter Hana!) I’ve been enjoying some good time off, and although I look forward to resuming seasonal collections, I am taking the opportunity to focus on family for a while longer.

On that note– I’d like to introduce the DANA LEE STOCK PROGRAM: a way of continuing to make my core styles available to you. With exception of a few special stores, these items will be available exclusively at for regular price throughout the year. I hope you continue to visit my store; who knows- there might even be the occasional something with sparkles.
