The City of Kingston has temporarily closed all of Kingston Arts’ venues. We are doing this to try to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus within the community and to comply with Government requirements. Our gallery and workshop programs are also impacted with 'Metamorphoses' opening and exhibition cancelled.
We thank you for your understanding during these very difficult times. We look forward to welcoming you back to Kingston Arts Centre and its spaces soon.
I close my eyes is a painting exhibition in sweet candy-coloured hues, featuring semi-abstract and exaggerated figures in surreal environments. Paintings depict familiar, yet indescribable scenes in which representation and abstraction hold equal weight on the canvas.
The paintings are created with thin layers of paint, scratchy gestural brushstrokes and fields of colour to create nonlinear narratives. Piecing together disparate pictorial elements and materials, the works evoke an unknown story that exists somewhere between reality and a dream.
