Solo Show by Artist Chris Langstroth at Kurbatoff Art Gallery on South Granville Sept 23-Oct 7
Kurbatoff Art Gallery, 2427 Granville Street, on South Granville presents a solo exhibition of new works by Artist Chris Langstroth from September 23rd to October 7th, 2010. Chris Langstroth has been a full time artist for twenty years after graduating from Ontario College of Art, and later Ryerson University in Toronto, specializing in film and photography. He has participated in numerous solo, group and juried exhibitions, and has his works in many corporate and private collections. By using thick paint and knives to apply multiple wet layers or dig through existing layers, the artist often makes his work balance on the edge of abstraction and figuration. In each painting Chris is searching for the most compelling combination of imagery and abstract paint quality.
“The ongoing challenge in making pictures is to understand and control the effect produced by the interaction of abstract paint marks and the things being represented. The marks themselves tend to be difficult to control, but unpredictability keeps the process interesting, and the potential for new discoveries is always there.” —Chris Langstroth

Artist Chris Langstroth in attendance
“From a distance, Chris Langstroth’s works are stunning abstract paintings, but look closer and you’ll see distinct human shapes. By using thick paint and knives to apply multiple wet layers or dig through existing layers, he leaves evidence of his process in the finished product.” —Alison Malone, WHERE Magazine, 2007
