Myself and three friends (Nimit Malavia, Dave Murray and Martha Chan) are having a group show at Toronto’s Steamwhistle Brewery on June 5th, entitled GEOGRAPHY.
I’ll be showing 5 paintings from the Sunken Garden series - 4 of which are brand spankin’ new! Above is a peek at one of the new paintings.
A note on the series - The Sunken Garden is a narrative I’ve been quietly mulling over for the past few years. When I was younger, I read a lot of YA fantasy and played a lot of RPGs. I fell in love with worlds that seemed familiar but weren’t bound to the realities of life as we know it; with the idea of creating a brand new world, history and folklore that is slowly unveiled through the course of a story. Where I’d always been content to enjoy the creations of others, in recent years some part of me has been itching to create stories of my own.
I’d love if you guys came out to say hello, have a beer, and to see how this story is shaping! The opening reception starts at 7PM - you can find all of the details at the Facebook Event Page.
