Jan 6, 2016 – I’ll be showing my work alongside Gary Clement at Loop Gallery in Toronto for most of January. The paintings I’m showing are an interesting collision between sculpture, painting and my background in geology. Over the years I’ve often painted from models that I create in order to arrive at a simplification of space and form. It’s an effective world building exercise but one that allows the more abstract aspects of light and shadow to play an important narrative role. This respect for observation and attention to physical detail lends an authority to my work and allows it to have weight as a counter to its inherent humor.
