Contrarians

May 1 to June 3, 2018

Vernissage: Thursday, May 3 from 5-9pm

At first blush, these two artists appear to conflict with each other. One is a near-abstract bender of landscapes, the other a careful realist. Combined, their work presents a show of contrarian camaraderie.

After studying at McGill University and the Ottawa School of Art, Stuart Kinmond worked for many years as an architect in Ottawa. He is now a full-time visual artist working in paint, digital media and installations. Kinmond has received two city of Ottawa commissions for public art: one at the Carleton University transit station; the other in front of St. Paul’s University. His paintings incorporate a playful fracturing of our sense of scale and perspective. His representational, bordering on abstract, works evoke familiar places through a gossamer veil, as if in a wonderful dream.

Peter Fischer is a graphic designer and landscape artist based in Dundas, ON. His paintings focus on the fine nuances within the natural world. His carefully-honed landscapes capture atmosphere and sharp details. Fischer gathers inspiration from the beautiful escarpment passing through Dundas, as well as his travels to Quebec and the Maritimes.  Besides Cube Gallery, he is represented by the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Galerie D’este, Montreal, and the McMichael Art Gallery in Kleinburg, Ontario.
