    A mere different arrangement of the particulars of the scene, of the details of the picture, would be sufficient to modify, or perhaps to annihilate its capacity for sorrowful impression. - Edgar Allan Poe.

    Sean Mills (10) exhibits at the Elissa Cristall Gallery in a solo show entitled Pure Feeling. The exhibition consists of a selection of paintings from an ongoing series of work which first began in 2008.

    Sean’s paintings have been described as process and time based, labour intensive, geometric, white monochrome grids. An understanding of light and it’s interaction with matter are important to how the work functions. The diffusion of light traveling through varying depths of a clear acrylic acts to control the tonality of equivalent white acrylic applications at differing levels within the painting’s surface.

    Catriona Jeffries Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of Ron Terada’s (’91) new series of paintings, Jack.

    Initiated in 2009 while on residency at the Banff Centre, Terada began the project of painting the six specific chapters from the book Jack Goldstein and the CalArts Mafia that had been written by the American artist Jack Goldstein, before his untimely suicide in 2003.  The book chronicles Goldstein’s life as an artist while at the same time charting the emergence of artists from CalArts in the 70s, and their migration to New York and the subsequent failures and successes of artists from the period.
