For every dweller in the city, and especially for Toronto artist Jean-Philippe Finkelstein, metropolitan experience is a cinema of discontinuous, fugitive events. An ordinary wall is suddenly, briefly illuminated by a shaft of sunshine, then returned to darkness. This recollection of the ephemeral is the task Finkelstein has set for himself in his recent paintings on paper. He conjures with his memories, making symbolic pictures intended to invoke what he has glimpsed--not the literal appearance of it, of course, but rather its sensuous impact on his mind and soul.
Shadows will run from November 21st to December 2nd, 2012.
A reception will be held on December 22nd, 2012. from 7-10pm.
