Feaured Poets LeaTaranto, Allan Hill, Susan Cormier, RC Weslowski, Candie Tanaka, Timothy Shay

All the poets write new work based on the paintings at the exhibition

In this show are paintings and multi media pieces that draw upon the artists experience as a traveller. Depicting energy, gestures…allowing sound, music and rhythm to drive the image. They reflect the artists experience, the constant shifting from city to city, movement, all the uncertainty, and the life of the moment they were created in.

The works begin as sketches. Small scribbles and swirls, dots and scratches…influenced by the environment, the sound of cars, peoples voices, whatever is happening right there. Colors enter the work that have been absorbed in in his travels, sounds, stains on a subway tube ticket, moss and ivy, racks of fabric, devotional imagery, advertisements and candy wrappers, the water running down the wall of a building and most recently he has begun to incorporate street posters, flyers, bits of newspaper, anything and everything…all the lines, colors and titles are a log of those moments.

Derek Gillingham is an artist who attended OCAD University in the 1970’s, traveled and lived extensively throughout North America…Toronto, New York, Montreal, Vancouver and San Francisco, as well as living in London, UK where he has recently exhibited his work.
