Opening reception Friday June 3, 7-9:30 pm

Clarke and KarmakarSupria and Marilyn share an approach that involves the layering of materials and colour, resulting in rich textured, vibrant and translucent surfaces. Intersections can be seen in themes unearthing personal and universal narratives. Throughout archetypal and representational forms are employed using detailed and often elaborate approaches to surface manipulation.

Supria and Marilyn invite the viewer to go beyond what is on the surface-to see delicacy, strength, and fragility, colliding within the surface frames.
