COLIN FRASER: SUNNY DAYS AND CITY LIGHTS: New Paintings

October 13 - November 10, 2018
Overview

The subjects that I paint have a connection to me. It's an emotional and often historical connection. I need this if I am going to commit the time, work and feeling needed to produce a tempera which may take weeks to complete.

The cityscapes/nocturnes of Toronto came about after many visits for shows at Mira Godard Gallery and spending a lot of time, unable to sleep, walking around the city in the small hours. I never planned to make these pictures, they just happened as a result of the material I gathered together observing this fascinating place. They are not so much portraits of the city but rather how it feels as an outsider to walk around it.
