Locus Amoenus: Matt Shane solo show (Red Bird, Nov 26)

“Out of Sight” by Matt Shane (Click to enlarge)

Don’t miss Locus Amoenus, an exhibition of intricate imagined landscapes by Montreal artist Matt Shane, opening at Red Bird this Saturday. Shane sees painting as a form of travel. “When I’m physically traveling, I like to plan a trip, wander and get lost, lose my bearings, and eventually find my way home,” he says in his artist statement. “Similarly with painting, I like to let the composition grow and evolve beyond any prevision I start out with. My favorite paintings offer more than a trip for their creator—they are grounds for thought, play and discovery on the part of the viewer as well.”
