Raspberry Tart ―

Raspberry Tart plays with things from the nursery: an iconic fruit pie, a sing-song rhyme, curlicue script and a colour just short of rock candy or a slap on the buttocks. The pretty text is, however deceiving and ends on a rude note. A long format and a sniggering joke—this is a permanent raspberry, a loop of distaste.

Adrian Norvid was born in the U.K. and currently lives and works in Montreal. His production focuses on immersive drawn environments with large-scale drawings, paper constructions and modified found objects. Norvid’s concerns centre around popular imagery, vernacular and kitsch with sources ranging from psychedelia to Georgian era illustration. Recent shows include: Wrongo at Joyce Yahouda Gallery in Montreal; Dummkopf at Galerie Julia Garnatz in Cologne, Germany; Goodnight Irene with Jason McLean at Jessica Bradley Art + Projects in Toronto; the Montreal Triennial; and Showstoppers, Whoppers, Downers and Out of Towners at the Art Gallery of Windsor. Adrian Norvid’s works are in the collections of the Musée d’art contemporain in Montreal, the Collection Prêt d’œuvres d’art du Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec and the Colart Collection.
