We are proud to announce Shaun Morin's first solo exhibition with the gallery. The Quiet Crescendo will present a new series of paintings building on the artist's well-established personal iconography. Combining this iconography with his constant and varied culling of source imagery, Morin's paintings provide the viewer with endless, scattered narratives.
"I want to establish the artistic freedom to explore visually within different styles of painting. As the search goes on, the custom visual blends get more difficult to decipher. The less familiar it becomes for me, the more enticing it is to make; it becomes like a search for a first kiss over and over. The more the search goes on for new discoveries the more sophisticated the eye becomes and the deeper the ability for an authentic and original experience to share."
Shaun Morin a.k.a The Slomotion, graduated from the University of Manitoba School of art in 2004. His art work ranges from oil paintings on canvas to mixed media on paper as well as hand made booklets and outdoor street art installations. Morin has been exhibiting his art work nationally and internationally since 2002, including the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Plug In ICA, J Johnson Gallery (Florida), MoCCA (Toronto), and la maison rouge (Paris). He was a finalist in the RBC Painting Competition, and in 2013 was featured in the “Painting Project”, a Canadian painting survey exhibition at the Galerie UQAM in Montreal.
We look forward to celebrating this new body of work on Saturday, March 12 from 2-5 pm. The artist will be in attendance.
