Pigment Parade

Oliver Mitchell

Opening reception Friday, July 3rd, 2009, 7 to 9 p.m.

Exhibition runs through to Sunday, July 12th.

Oliver Mitchell’s canvas series of mixed media collage is song on canvas. His process focuses on the kinetics of music, dance, digital media, watercolour, and photography.

Each picture is composed of a series of layers, the first one generally being a watercolour painting, although it could be a collage or photo. As more layers are added, usually 5 or 6 of them, they are digitally merged until the desired effect is attained or as often happens, a surprise!

The art and music of many cultures has always been integral to Oliver’s development as an artist, as he has been so fortunate to have lived in very diverse cities since his birth in Cairo, he has lived in Edinborough, Tokyo, Zagreb, London, Dacca, Istanbul, and in Canada since 1986.

The intention of this body of work is to merge multicultural and mixed media streams — and to facilitate this the artist will introduce the paintings with live guitar and songs in a performance setting.

Gallery Hours: Saturday and Sunday, 1:00–5:00 p.m.

Oliver Mitchell's Scratch The Mirror.
