BAU-XI GALLERY, TORONTO:

December 7 – 22, 2013, Main Floor: Darlene Cole

Show title: Armoire

Opening Reception: Saturday December 7th, 2-4pm

Darlene Cole is well known for the ethereal quality of her soft dreamscapes and the narrative tension within them. She uses a unique painting method to capture loosely rendered moments in time. Her paintings often focus on her perception of the disappearance of childhood. Cole is extremely well known for her obscure painted figures and unique painting method, which create a mysterious stage-like setting. Cole received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Queen’s University, her Master of Fine Arts degree from University of Waterloo, and is now represented in collections across Canada.

BAU-XI GALLERY, TORONTO:

December 7 – 22, 2013, Upper Gallery: Gordon Wiens

Opening Reception: Saturday December 7th, 2-4pm

Gordon Wiens studied painting at St. Lawrence College where he subsequently taught drawing and painting. He creates contemporary abstract paintings in acrylic on canvas and paper. Wiens’ finely layered paintings reflect an interest in the transient, fragile nature of existence. Drawing inspiration from Zen, Ikebana, and inconspicuous details from small, weathered objects, Wiens’ acrylic on canvas paintings develop through a unique paint-layering process. The result is abstract work which is both energetic and calming, with careful compositions and layers of soft colour. His works have been exhibited in Vancouver and Toronto, and can be found in many private collections.
