The 3-D lenticular process is a new form of art-making that allows the viewer to experience an image in 3-D without the aid of 3-D glasses. The process is a complex one that involves multi-layered printing procedures. The use of lenticular printing in my latest series adds another layer to this process that further broadens the experience for the viewer. It is the combination of 3-D lenticular processes with my painted/drawn images (the union of studio practice with t ...

I do not find words can reveal much about a work of art, rather they tend to obscure and limit one's perception. The attempted homogeneity of verbal concepts can repress first instincts and the personal for the viewer.

Entropy is universal, ubiquitous and essential. It is the action of life, change, chaos, evolution, randomness over time.
It is the definition of changing, a sudden breaking of a plate, or a seemingly endless cosmic exchange.

Portable Walls is a collaborative exhibition of new work by Christian Nicolay and Ya-chu Kang exploring contemporary narratives of safety and identity, man and women, East and West, in a post 9-11 age where it seems more rules, regulations and checks on our privacy continue to grow and change.

Realism in the 21st Century
Gregory Crewdson

Mar 04, 2012 – Mar 10, 2012

Talk 4: The influence of non-representation and abstraction on realism continues. We will look at both photography and highly rendered representational art as responding directly to their apparent counterpart - abstraction.


Jonathan Sutton draws on his training in literature, theatre, and film, and of course on art history, in his ongoing studio practice. His rendering of unreal scenes through realistic drawing and oil painting reflects a stretch one way into traditiona ...

Feb 12, 2012 – Mar 17, 2012

Painter Carolyn Stockbridge returns to The Elliott Louis Gallery with her third solo exhibition, titled 'Groupings'. In these paintings shapes appear, disappear, travel the surface, and are pushed back to re-emerge. These quieting earth tone paintings surprise and surrender to evocative emotion and at times, cheeky gesture. Stockbridge likens them to groupings or tribes of colour, shape and marks that are indicative of the nature of paint and of human kind.

Realism in the 21st Century
Jean Paul Riopelle

Jan 09, 2012 – Jan 13, 2012

Talk 3: The influence of non-representation and abstraction on realism.

In the previous talks, we considered the natural progression from impressionism to increasing abstraction and non-representation, especially in response to the realism and accuracy of photography. We'll look more deeply at the apparent opposition between non-representation and realism, and how these two approaches continue to respond to each other.

Jonathan Sutton draws on his training in literatu ...
