Back from Canada where I saw Edward Burtynsky's excellent OIL show at the equally impressive Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton. Large in scale, ghostly, brooding, the pictures demand attention. Presented without comment often from an aerial viewpoint they can't help but recall Koyaanisqatsi. The location of the show a few hundred miles south of one of the latest hot button issues facing oil politics looms in the mind too.
