Land of Allure
9 Sep - 14 Oct 2015, First Canadian Place Gallery
These artists entice viewers into phenomenal worlds through seductive imagery that seize the senses onto a path of fantastical immersion. Melissa Doherty, is known for her excruciatingly detailed paintings of trees, either from above or from within the bowels of the bark, pulling viewers into the heart and soul of the bewitching world that comprises the sanctuary of the tree. Yangyang Pan's intense, mash-up collision of textural colours, pull viewers into her world of germinating abstraction, only to push our anxieties to her outer limits of bliss and utter serenity. Douglas Walker lures viewers into his fantastical layers of wonder through his monochromatic paintings of otherworldly imagery that includes architecture, numerical text and astonishing, unexplored lands.
Douglas Walker and Yangyang Pan are represented by Parts Gallery in Toronto.
Melissa Doherty is represented by Renann Isaacs Contemporary Art.
Exhibition Curator, Kelly McCray will be in attendance and available for discussion on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 AM - 2:30 PM.
