Experiencing ART: The Prelude & The Recluse

Making strides on Dupont Street, our little group of Art Lovers turned the corner and made our way toward Unit #15 of the Angell Gallery, excited to view the contemporary art works of artist Gavin Lynch.

The title of this show originates from an unfinished poem by English Poet, William Wordsworth, whom like Lynch, used nature as his subject.

In this piece, I found my favourite:

{Prelude no. 4 (Lost on the Slope), 2015, oil/acrylic on canvas, 84″ x 60″}

The pieces of his art on show here, all reflect various types of landscapes and their conceptual dualities. One becomes aware that the sites are of historical significance as Lynch, takes his visuals from the Killarney Provincial Park which was the sketching location for the Group of Seven.

The distinctive style of this artist is found in his naturalism and stylization, flatness and depth, luminosity and darkness, abstraction and representation, and that strike juxtapositions of hard and soft forms. Sharp details of his paintings, lifted slightly off the canvas, I confess…. I did softly touch!

Gavin Lynch certainly has a distinct style and in this exhibition, The Prelude and The Recluse, the audience of viewers is invited to look AT the paintings of prelude, while looking IN at the paintings of recluse…. (please see artist’s website to visualize this further).

This exhibit left me and my Art Loving pals, LOTS of room for interpretation and we were sharing our different points of view …right after the show!
