Opening: Benjamin Rodger – Tu peux encore changer le monde (You Can Still Change the World)

September 19, 2019 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Catalogue excerptUpon first glance, [the forms in Rodger's paintings] seem to have been created using a sharp gesture on the surface of the canvas - a splash, as referenced by the titles of several exhibited works. Yet each "drip" is in fact formed with intent: the contours are precise, and each line and spot was painted with great care. This second dichotomy between the random and the intentional positions the canvas as a performance space. The form does not emerge (organic drip), but it is created (controlled form). - François ChalifourBenjamin Rodger gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the City of Ottawa.. 110 Laurier Avenue WestOttawa, ON K1P 1J1..

The works explore how alternate layers of colours and patterns reflect the gradual process of time seen through moving changes in the landscape.Sylvie Grenier interprets life and the spirit of places she experiences in an abstract thought because abstraction has no limit.

Her current work carries forward the idea of painting in a minimalist way and is focused on creating a quick gestural response to the land.Gallery hoursMonday to Thursday 8 :30 am to 9 pmFriday 8:30 am to 6 pmSaturday 10 am to 5 pm. 101 Centrepointe DriveNepean, ON K2G5K9..
