Navillus Gallery is proud to announce that it will be taking part in the Art Toronto: Toronto International Art Fair. Located at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Art Toronto is Canada’s only modern and contemporary fine art fair, with unique access to the Canadian arts market.
An annual fall event founded in 2000, Art Toronto serves as the galvanizing vehicle for the nation’s art world. Art Toronto presents more than 100 select galleries from across Canada, the US, Europe, China, Japan and Mexico – complemented with special projects, exhibits, a full VIP program and dynamic cultural offerings.
For our second year at The Fair, the focus of the Gallery shifts to the colourful abstractions of Kirk Mechar and veteran Toronto artist Michael Adamson. Vibrant colours and rich impasto textures are the common theme between the two, but that is where the similarities end.
Mechar’s tropical inspired canvases use repetition and interwoven patterns to create mesmerizing fields reminiscent of wildflowers during a storm. The canvases are built up with abstract forms that create an engulfing tapestry of colour.
Adamson brings a selection of 2013 canvases done in styles that span the past 10 years of his career. The styles are instantly recognizable as Adamson’s and are sure to delight both fans and newcomers to his work. Included in the show are several pieces from a new series of work titled Baile Funk, after the popular and politicized dance music prevalent in disadvantaged parts of the world. These new canvases are raw and contradictory with heavy bursts of paint beating against subtly complex fields of shimmering colour.
Check us out Oct. 25 – 28 at Booth 444.
