About artist/note:

Landfill, Richmond, B.C. (1991) is a spectacular example of the type of monumental
exploration of the man-made environment that characterizes this particular era of Roy Arden’s
work. Urban detritus is framed in a way that would feel at home to any eighteenth-century British
painter dealing in the picturesque, and its consideration of the changing landscape is as
relevant now in the age of mounting climate crisis as it was during the era of breakneck
development in 1990s Vancouver. A work that is as stunningly incisive as it is timely, Landfill,
Richmond, B.C. is a part of the permanent photography collection at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and the Vancouver Art Gallery (VAG)
