    Andrew Dadson (03) and Jonathan Syme exhibit new works that explore the materiality of paint through distinct methods of layering.

    Jonathan uses linear elements of saturated colour to draw the eye into his optically rich fields of algorithmic-like abstraction. In contrast, Andrew’s work is mute and calm by nature with subtle evidence of the layers of colour and texture that make up the final effaced surface; both allowing the viewer to enter the void and explore the liminal space between.

    Angell Gallery presents Kim Dorland’s (98) sixth solo exhibition at the gallery in an exhibit entitled Nocturne.

    The exhibit paintings, drawings and sculptures expose a world of supernatural, dreamlike imaginings to us, where what is or isn’t “real” has come into question; and been made to seem plausible by the power of the imagination. The artist’s implication, in deploying his habitual formal gusto, seems to be that what is believed to be real, is as real as it needs to be.

    Kim Dorland | Nocturne
    January 22 – February 19, 2011
    Opening Reception | Saturday, January 22 | 6-9pm
    Angell Gallery
    Toronto, Ontario
