REFRAMED - Painting and Collage by Tiko Kerr
May 25 - Aug 31, 2019
Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art, 2121 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver

Reframed features new work by Tiko Kerr. Throughout his more than 30 year-long career, Kerr has explored the concept of perception through painting. His most recent works continue along this line of inquiry while drawing on images from art history and popular culture to explore the contemporary moment of widespread unrest and trauma. The distinctive wobbly style he developed and honed with his past work has been left behind and in its place is a deft handling of historically expressionist painterly styles, re-contextualized for today’s social and political climate.
