pic The show features large figurative oil paintings, ranging from 6 feet to 4 feet wide. The themes I've been exploring in this work include fantasy, desire, intimacy, romance, communication, and coming of age. All presented in a combination of sincerity and tongue in cheek humour. This body of work is an offshoot of what I was doing earlier this year and last year as an exploration of gay identity focusing on media representations of young men and romance.

The show is up from May 28th to June 1st. There will be an opening reception on Monday the 27th, from 5:30 to 7pm. I'll be there to talk with and answer any questions, or just to say hi.

The exhibition is in the Anna Leonowens Gallery (which is part of NSCAD), 1891 Granville St. (near the Split Crow).
