this town is small and The Guild present a solo exhibition of new paintings by Damien Worth. The Cusp exhibit will be on view December 8 to January 4 at The Gallery @ The Guild in Charlottetown. The series of work explores new approaches to depicting landscape in times of transition.
Worth notes that, “Landscape painting has a lot of historical baggage and I’m ok with that. But I try to avoid the idyllic and instead favour the turbulent. I think the thresholds where worlds collide can be adequate metaphors for current social, political, and economic struggles. These paintings refer to situations where pressure builds to a point of inevitable release.”
The exhibition’s title “The Cusp” refers to this precarious lip’s edge.
Damien Worth’s work has been exhibited in national and international venues and his paintings are in permanent collections at the Rooms provincial art bank in Newfoundland, the University of New Brunswick Art Centre, and the Confederation Centre Art Gallery in Charlottetown.
The Gallery @ The Guild is located at 111 Queen Street in Charlottetown.
