Embers of the sky

5 Peter Street South,Upper Level, Orillia, ON L3V 5A8      
Hours:Thurs to Saturday 10-4 or by appointment
Janet Read @ Lee Contemporary Mar. 24-Apr. 14

Embers of the sky, Janet’s first show at Lee Contemporary consists of works on linen, canvas and acrylic on paper.  The work is inspired by light over water and the deep colours of sky and water as they reflect and amplify each other.

Light and dark in saturated colour animate my work. Saturated deep blues allude to the mysterious depths of water and vivid agitated and gestural painted skies to the light of the air.  These elements collide and mirror each other in a mode of atmospheric abstraction, a term coined by Carla Garnet, curator, to describe this work in my solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Peterborough in 2013.

CAPIC 2018 Double Vision Exhibition

Double Vision is an exhibition that pairs participating professional image creators across Canada by random draw and challenges them to create portraits of one another. The completed works are then exhibited side by side as a single submission.
