WIRE ACT: Exhibition Opening at the SJAC

Please join me on Friday for the opening of my latest exhibition 'Wire Act' - a new collection of large abstract works. These paintings build on my ongoing project to depict urban spaces in a more conceptual (less representational) way. (You can see previous abstract projects on my portfolio page.) This latest project continues my look at aerial views of urban landscapes, city plans and maps, but is also inspired by negative spaces in the urban environment and the wires that crisscross these spaces. 

Special thanks to the City of Saint John for hosting this exhibition and to ArtsNB for their support.
