Earls Court Gallery is excited to launch into the Fall Season with the vibrant exhibition INTERPRETIVE LAYERS featuring new paintings by Toronto artist Dara Aram and Dundas artist Iris McDermott.
For Dara Aram and Iris McDermott the practice of painting has become an activity designed to reinforce their interpretive skill of their chosen subjects of landscape or still life objects.
The application of paint in multiple layers is utilized by Dara Aram to execute his observations of the changing seasons both within self and landscape. Taking time to understand his origin and the space that surrounds him, Dara Aram creates vibrant abstract interpretations. These interpretations often are rooted in landscape and suggest a ground and sky for the viewer to launch their own interpretation from.
By way of observation and the ability to harness saturated colours, Iris McDermott interprets a collection of still life objects onto multiple planes. Some objects seem to leap over the others, while water jugs gently grace a flowing table cloth. McDermott’s tenderness for these objects is further exposed in the lively gestural marks giving the objects lifelike portrayals in her paintings.
INTERPRETIVE LAYERS 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 upon installation.
