|Exhibition by Jared Washam|
|June 18 - July 29|
In his first large-scale paper-cutting to be exhibited in Canada, Jared Washam presents "Long the peal of distant thunder." The work is created from a single sheet of water-colour paper, spray painted on the reverse and then sliced into thousands of "feathers" which, when popped forward of the white face of the paper, cast a coloured drop shadow and form a subtle "glow" of colour primarily observed indirectly. Both the work's title and design reference the traditional Asian Dragon while the emphasis on stark palette and experimental technique belie an artistic debt to western contemporary art practices.

|Commentary from the artist:
These displays are paintings of local landscapes. After seeing the exhibition space filled with light and light coloured walls, I was moved to paint large canvases full of light and bright color, in an attempt to capture a moment of what it feels like to be immersed in the west coast nature. Formally they pay homepage to Art History and the impressionistic paintings that I have always loved. Conceptually though, I think of them as snapshots that we share on social media and its use as an attempt to hang onto strings of peaceful moments when we are connected to the source. There is something about undisturbed landscapes that most people harken for instrumentals of light and colour that quiet our own minds.
Here are some of my art work will be feature during this exhibition:
