"from knife edge to tranquility" - oil paintings on canvas by Kevin Dodds

Opening and Reception: Thursday, September 9th, 6 - 9 pm
Talk by Kevin Dodds at 7 pm
Show Dates: 9th to 26th September 2010 (Closed Mondays and Tuesdays)


Born and raised in Arnprior, just "up the line" from Ottawa, Kevin Dodds is well known for his rural scenes and local landscapes. At the risk of disappointing, this show "From knife edge to tranquility" will have none of that. In order to break from the limits of his past success, Kevin has spent the past four years in Florida. This Canadian premiere of his new work is sure to surprise his longstanding fans, I am equally sure that it will earn him new ones.

"My journey as a professional artist has taken many directions over the years; from the Ottawa Valley and western Quebec to my newest passion - the colourful and complex Miami, Florida. By experimenting with various colours and shapes, I have developed a technique where colour is put down in squares, then broken down further into non- shapes, thus creating a three dimensional for the viewer. Currently my work is progressing in three styles of painting from modernism, impressionism and to realism."
