Jordan Broadworth (Toronto) pays homage to painting’s glorious past with his large abstract canvases.

INCLUDING NEW ARTWORKS BY GALLERY ARTISTS:
Suzan Dionne (New York) is a Canadian Artist living in New York City. Dionne describes her new body of work:
”In these works, the halo deviates from its conventional shape and colour. Here they are blackened and sometimes a little charred and smoky, as though they have recently found their way back, slightly the worse for wear, from some dubious adventure. They operate in the realm of contradictions in the symbolic order, and humor as a response to crisis."
Marie Lannoo (Saskatoon) paints energetic and colorful abstraction with attention to the application of many layers of paint creating a heightened awareness of the surface while enticing the viewer into the work. For Lannoo, the act of painting is a very human experience, regardless of how abstract the imagery appears or how the paint is applied.
Jeff Nachtigall (Regina) recently completed a residency at the Banff Centre. The exhibition will feature large format painting the young painter completed during his residency, which explores Canadian pop culture iconography though brightly hued naďve brushwork.
