The Locus is changing up how we are doing our art openings at the restaurant. Previously, we changed the art on a monthly basis. While the art was eclectic and we had many talented artists in through the years, some of the material just wasn’t suitable for our restaurant and doing a monthly show was just too hectic for us.
We are now choosing more carefully and showcasing art for a longer time. Our first new show using this format is from Jonathan Lorne, a Vancouver based professional artist who create large-scale, highly-textured abstract acrylic paintings.
From Jonathan’s bio.
I am most interested in walking the line between having control over a painting and giving in to experimentation or chance by utilizing carefree paint applications. I prefer to be only a guide in the creation of a painting allowing each piece to aid in its own direction and completion. I like to play with paint on a textured canvas – mixing different viscosities of paint and watching how they interact on the surface.
