The Latcham Gallery presents Losing Ground, a solo exhibition by painter Melissa Doherty
Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Playing with scale, perspective and the sculptural aspects of painting, Kitchener-Waterloo-based artist Melissa Doherty challenges our perceptions of both landscape and landscape painting. Her recent work examines the way natural elements are removed from the ground and displayed in containers and planters, on rooftops and green walls, to explore the facade and artifice in the constructed landscape. She considers how this positions the natural landscape as one step removed from the ground that sustains it, creating a veneer of landscape.
Refreshments will be served. Remarks at 7:30pm. Admission is free and all are welcome.
