Artguise Gallery is proud to present Up the Street / Down the Road, the second solo exhibition at the gallery by Ottawa painter Derek Sean Quinlan. In this series Derek continues to develop his painterly style using subtle atmospheric realism. These new works have a soft warm quality with an apt sense of depth and detail. His subject matter is an attractive pairing of rural and urban settings rendered with delicate blended brush strokes. Derek’s rich pastoral sunsets are juxtaposed with elegant city avenues and alleyways. The works give the viewer pause to squint from a distance to ascertain whether they are viewing a snapshot of reality or a lush realist impression fashioned in paint. Derek’s ability to fool the eye of his audience has become one of the trademarks of his work featured in our exhibition space. Please join us opening night for an opportunity to meet the artist, view the new pieces and enjoy the first opening of our long awaited Spring exhibition season. All are welcome.
