Pictures at an Exhibition 

I recently concluded a three-week solo exhibition at Propeller Centre for Visual Arts in Toronto.  The exhibition went from April 6 to April 24, 2016.  A big thank you to everyone who came to see the show. Here are images from the exhibition. I will post pictures from specific paintings on this blog (on the “Oil Paintings” page) and on my Instagram site @jdcoto. Your comments are always welcome. 






Exhibition in Toronto – Beyond Landscape

Sundown

Sundown, Oil painting on canvas, 24″ x 36″ (60 cm x 91 cm)

I am please to announce that I will have an exhibition of my recent paintings at Propeller Centre for Visual Arts in Toronto, from April 6 to April 24, 2016.

The new paintings, while continuing my exploration of abstraction and representation in landscape, introduce bolder colours, bolder texture, bolder lines than I’ve generally used recently.

The gallery is of course open to all.  I will generally be at the gallery on Sundays.  If you plan to visit, send me a note or a text and I’ll try to come by to say hello.
