“Kin or Close Enough” is a series of paintings which follow the motto “destroy to create”. Within each painting there are multiple images sitting below the surface. In a somewhat counter-intuitive process, the paintings are repeatedly destroyed in hopes of creating new images in the dissolved forms and colours. Although the resulting image is representational, this is almost in spite of itself. The painting process has little regard for the image and is more akin to how an abstract painter works. The results of this method are figurative paintings containing a strong visual history which reference both the human condition and the practice of painting.
“Kin or Close Enough” opening reception takes place on September 29th, 2016 from 8-10 pm in the Fitzhenry Atrium, Togo Salmon Hall at McMaster University.
The show runs from September 28th to October 14th.
