Warren Hoyano – How the Water Flows
Watercolour on paper
October 5-28, 2012
Opening reception Friday October 5, 7-9:30pm
Warren Hoyano works exclusively in watercolour. ‘It is a medium that can trace its roots back to the beginnings of human artistic expression. The qualities that I enjoy about watercolour are its ability to make both dense, opaque marks, and transparent, stain-like marks. This, in combination with the white of the paper, gives the medium potential for tremendous complexity. As an abstract painter I take my inspiration from the ephemeral such as shadows, stains, marks on flat concrete and aleatory patterns. A further source of inspiration has been the way x-rays, ultrasound images and photographic negatives portray reality. From the world of art, I have been influenced by Abstract Expressionism, East Asian ink painting and Japanese ceramics.’
Warren Hoyano lives and works as a full-time artist in Brampton, Ontario. He has exhibited widely in Ontario in solo and group shows and has received numerous awards for his work. In 2013 Warren will participate in The Artist Project and have solo exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Mississauga, and Yorkminister Park Gallery in Toronto. He is represented by Wellington Street Art Gallery, Toronto, and In2Art Gallery, Oakville.
