Loch Gallery is excited to feature new paintings by artists Barry McCarthy and Ciba Karisik, both masters of light and atmosphere. McCarthy and Karisik will be exhibited in the second room of our Toronto gallery with Philip Craig's paintings featured in the front room.
Barry McCarthy explores the Killarney region in his two major canvases of majestic windswept trees. In the painting "Killarney", the trees eke out their existence out of granite rock and stand leaning against the northern elements. A nod to the Group of Seven, the lone tree in McCarthy's canvas "Landmark Pine" is a metaphor of our Canadian north and has been a repeated source of inspiration for the artist who grew up on the shores of Lake Superior.
For Ciba Karisik, meadows and floral gardens have always been places of freedom and rest. His flower-filled retreats provide a feast for the eyes. “Waiting for the Wind #3” is a triumph of greens punctuated by sophisticated dabs of bold colours suggesting the forms of wildflowers. His other canvas “Pond Reflections” is a symphony of colour and engaging in composition - an homage to Claude Monet with water lilies in vibrant colours resting on a mercurial pond surface.
