Biographical history

Anthony Morse ("Tony") Urquhart, was born at Niagara Falls, Ont., April 1934. "He studied art at the Albright Art School and U[niversity] of Buffalo. In 1961 he joined a group of London, Ont. artists, including Greg Curnoe and Jack Chambers, who advocated a regional approach to art. Drawing from his own experiences, Urquhart works in a style that makes explicit reference to the underlying complexities and paradoxes he sees in the local landscape. In his boxed landscape sculptures of the 1960's he achieved a surreal juxtaposition of savage and primordial relationships with the actual and familiar. The constructions become at once a personal interior space and a universal collective landscape." [By Kathleen Laverty from Canadian Encyclopedia, 1985.]
