Rob Niezen’s nocturnes show the dream world of our cities created by artificial lights. Rainy night reflections create bursts of colour, and reveal our theatrical surroundings. These paintings are a testament to the vibrancy of the city, and vary from broader contextual city views to close-ups that render more abstract compositions, as the artificial lights create magic on small and large scale.

Hi folks! This is my first blogging notation. I’m a new member and happy to be included into your organization.
Yesterday, during a persistant downpour there was a moat around my barn studio as I nervously watched the tidal waves slowly rising up to my studio and shaking the old structure to it’s core. I’m about six metres from the water’s edge and this deluge didn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. Even a bedraggled, lone seagull was tapping at my window trying to get in out of the downpour! Now today, it’s sunny and clear, and the building still stands albeit minus a few shingles.That’s the way it goes here in Passamaquoddy Bay. If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute and it’ll change!
Jean Eng’s painting “Bonsai Minute” is included in “Animalia” an exhibition of animals in the Archives of Ontario. The show currently runs indefinitely— at least until 2021. The Archives of Ontario’s newest exhibit explores our changing relationships with other animals and how these species have left their mark on Ontario’s history.
