Extended Label Info: The weathered edge and yellowed tone of the paper in this drawing gives the illusion of an aged parchment or artifact. Entitled “Encyclopedia Atlanticus – Regarding the Wave,” this is in fact a contemporary artwork in ink and pencil crayon by Lorne Beug. The drawing incorporates diagrams, a mathematical equation, and a discussion in text on “The Wave Theory of Human Consciousness” in which Beug reflects on the ripple effect of thoughts and actions. The influence of Beug’s academic studies in Anthropology and Psychology can be seen in the themes of his artwork which explores ideas of history, urban life, and prairie landscape. Lorne Beug (1948-) was born in Regina. He studied at the University of Regina, earning his Bachelor of Arts, with a major in Anthropology and Psychology (1969). In 1972, Beug studied ceramics with Joe Fafard and Marilyn Levine. Moving to Vancouver in 1978, Beug taught ceramics at the Burnaby Arts Centre and the Outreach Program at Emily Carr College of Art and Design (now the Emily Carr University of Art and Design or ECUAD). Returning to Regina in 1983, Beug expanded his art practice, combining ceramics with other materials, and incorporating photo collage, faux marbling, mosaic mapping, and mixed-media sculpture. Lorne Beug’s work is included in many public and corporate collections, including the MacKenzie Art Gallery, the Remai Modern in Saskatoon, the Canada Council Art Bank, the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, University of Calgary, and Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland.
