Painting — it brings to mind a colour palette of oil or acrylic, a brush, knife, or sponge, and a surface of some kind — paper, canvas, even a wall. But how about the addition of a video component? Sculpture? Or perhaps merging the painting with two- or three-dimensional objects? These are some of the ways in which four Canadian painters are exploring their medium through non-traditional means in Close Listening, an exhibit at the Ottawa Art Gallery. Come see the results! On display until Sept. 21.
