Earls Court Gallery graciously announces FOUND SANCTUARY exhibit featuring new paintings by Hamilton artist Barry Hodgson and Toronto artist Murray Gainer.
Finding sanctuary amongst the land is not a new artistic exploration, however curator Andrea Jackman has brought together two artists who each approach this portrayal of landscape in contrasting methods that result in the artist finding a place of quietude.
For artist Barry Hodgson the action of painting is an ‘in the moment’ thing. In his own words, “Composition and mark-making take precedence over description. My process is to find relationships among my subject, my materials and my own concerns and use them, in a very immediate manner, to guide all the decision-making in the working process.” The results are thoroughly thought out paintings that depict landforms with only the essential components to communicate to the viewer his interpretations.
In contrast, Murray Gainer reflects on emotions and feelings towards loneliness, loss, sanctuary, mystery, longing and foreboding. The paintings offer a dreamlike depiction of landforms where horizon blends into the reaching hillsides while reflective pools of water offer refreshing blues that cut though the land and mirror the sky’s movements. This blending is what Murray “believes the more successful of these paintings incorporate an emotional charge.”
FOUND SANCTUARY exhibition can be viewed in person at 215 Ottawa Street North, Hamilton. Earls Court Gallery is open Tuesday – Friday 10 am to 5 pm and Saturday 10 am to 4 pm. The artworks will be featured in the main gallery. All artworks will be featured online starting October 5, 2023.
