Luke Painter – Anterior – May 2012 – LE Gallery


May 4  until May 27

ANTERIOR – Luke Painter
OPENING —– Friday May 4, 6-9pm

In his first solo exhibition at LE Gallery, titled Anterior, Painter continues to reshape and distort contemporary and historical ornamental art references. Highly detailed work in ink on paper reveals a labourious process of drawing and rendering that results in a refreshing and unique collision of elements from throughout history. Through the drawings we observe a process of searching and exploration for a definition of what constitutes the broad range of contemporary ornament, intersecting with popular culture, science fiction and the world of fashion. Known for his background in drawing, printmaking and digital processes, Painter uses 3D software to plan these intricate works while also adopting the surreal colour palette and tone of early chromolithography prints. Painter has exhibited locally, nationally and internationally, and holds an MFA from Concordia University.
