TREVOR BRETT – Architecture as Threshold
Trevor Brett recently graduated from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design with a BFA in Visual Arts. His work combines his interest in the significance of imagery and meaning in architectural elements and how the use of colour affects the experience and meaning of these elements. The oil paintings in Architecture as Threshold have bold colours and clear shapes, and are framed in a way that makes us think critically about the spaces we inhabit and the monuments we revere.
SHERIDA CHARLES – Locations in Linocut
Created during the pandemic, Sherida’s reduction linocut prints are based on iconic signs or locations in our city and beyond. Highlighting forms, shapes and a simplified colour scheme, these limited edition prints are evocative and tell a historic tale about our urban cityscape.
