TWO PERSON EXHIBITION – MICHAEL BATTY & KRISTOFIR DEAN

Michael Batty’s paintings are calligraphic in nature, each activating the silence of the blank canvas with exacting strokes of colour. These markings utilize intuitive thin strokes of exacting color along with passages of seemingly empty voids of canvas. With the interacting elements, the viewer is sprung into action; the eye is guided through the painting in a search to both connect with, and de-code, the image.

Michael Batty graduated from Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver in 1989 with a major in painting.

With a focus on geometric abstraction, Kristofir Dean’s illusionistic paintings bring forth the full spectrum of colour. Colour acts as a focal point; each bold line and juxtaposing mark are saturated with rich hues, creating a vibrating language between colours. From afar, Dean’s paintings appear as 3-D objects, challenging the viewer’s perspective and visual space.

Kristofir Dean holds a BFA from Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCADU). His paintings have been shown internationally, including Australia and Hong Kong.

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 10, 2018: 2-4 PM. Exhibition runs from Saturday, March 10, to Saturday, May 5.
