Kevin Ghiglione: Introduction of New Works

9 - 27 June 2015

Kevin Ghiglione, a Saskatchewan born and now Toronto-based painter, brings decades of experience creating art to his encaustic painting, a medium dating back to the 5th century BC.

For the artist, encaustic painting entails more than just applying pigmented wax to a hard surface. His paintings are abstract construction projects, "buildings" of many dimensions and layers on which he uses composition, colour, and texture. His works merge the additive process of painting with the subtractive process of sculpture.

About his latest collection of work Kevin explains, "This most recent featured work continues in my exploration of the passage of time where former elements have been forgotten, lost to memory, and then partially excavated. The revealed result suggests a simultaneous sense of loss and mysterious discovery."
