Jan 25-29: In Open Air, Byron Hodgins
Jan 25-29: 5-9pm
Open Air showcases six paintings hang from the ceiling to create an unusual diorama of the landscape. Visitors are able to walk around the paintings and view the structures and backs of the pieces as well as walk between the painted surfaces via the 24-foot hallway configuration created by the installation.
Byron Hodgins is inspired both by an inward place and direct observation of nature. To him painting is a means of being sensitive to seeing colour, as much as a means for expressing visual thought. A plein air painting practice has lead Byron to experience the common place as transformational, an opportunity to be present and focus on the self.
