Pareidolia, an exhibition of paintings by Toronto based artist P Elaine Sharpe, marks her first solo exhibition with Wil Kucey Gallery.
Sharpe focuses her time in the studio on examining the intricate subtleties and boundaries of the painting process. The resulting collection of work reflects an intimate engagement with exploring surface and application. The results are generous to both producer and viewer.
Sharpe has developed a vocabulary of line and formal expression in paint that provides the framework for the multiple bodies of work included in the exhibition.
Whether focused on the unfurling of sinewy strands or reveling in the geology of paint revealed through sanding, obscuring, and reconstruction, Sharpe finds a tactile and sense-based pleasure in making her work, honing her interests in pushing the inherent constraints of space, material and the search for fulfillment throughout her processes.
Feel free to contact the gallery to arrange for a preview of the exhibition or to enquire as to the availability of particular works. We can be reached at 416.532.8467 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
