"Fire Season" is my latest body of work, debuting at Mayberry Fine Art's new location at 324 Dundas West in Toronto, across from the Art Gallery of Ontario. The exhibit runs May 6-24, opening Saturday May 6 from 1-5. I will be there to meet you and discuss the work.
In this series, I continued to push the boundaries of landscape into abstraction. I often began the paintings with a large palette knife loaded with paint, creating large, punchy stripy shapes that contrast with the brushwork and surface patterns to follow. The title of the show, for me, symbolizes the changes we are experiencing with climate - both physical and political. The paintings are meant to be transportive and open-ended, illustrations that await your narrative.
