"Doug Melnyk works with the fragment, the fleeting insight, the shocking contradiction, the bizarre repetition to give us a collection of texts that are comically and painfully original." Robert Kroetsch. Did you heart about that terrible accident at the intersections of Pembina and Corydon and Osborne? A car crashed right onto the bus shack and killed three people. The people who were sitting on the bench inside the shack could see the car coming. It crashed on top of the bus shack and on the bench and it killed three people. For a long time after this there was no bus shack on the corner. And then they finally did rebuild it but they put the bench inside the shack facing the other direction.
Doug Melnyk is a Winnipeg artist who works in performance and large-scale textual art as well as traditional media. A graduate of the School of Art at the University of Manitoba, he has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows. He is founding member and Program Director of Ace Art Gallery in Winnipeg.
