PETER KRAUSZ: THEN AND NOW: Early Photographs and New Paintings

April 21 - May 19, 2018

The title of the show, "Then and Now", makes obvious reference to the passage of Time. The earliest works in the show are photo images from Rome taken in 1969 and the last ones are works on paper from 2017, part of the ongoing series Winter Drawings from Summer Notes.

But one can think also of Space, the different sites as sources of inspiration – from the Mediterranean landscapes and the abandoned iron mines in Andalusia or Sicily to the changing cityscape I am documenting for the past 20 years from my window overlooking the Outremont train yard.

I am pleased that works from the ongoing series such as Cariera and Gare de Triage as well as images from the "Peter Krausz – Photographs 1969 – 2015" exhibition are shown for the first time in Toronto.
