Quentin Maki, composition w/ blue tape, (detail), 2017, mixed media on canvas, 122 x 76 cm

Kohesion: Quentin Maki

October 6 – November 19
Opening reception: Friday, October 13 at 7:30 pm

Inspired by the rural backdrop of his home in Kaministiqua and childhood, local artist Quentin Maki’s most recent work in the exhibition Kohesion explores composition, colour and texture. Indeed, many of the mixed media paintings in this exhibition contrast colour, brushstrokes and patterns to reveal a deep preoccupation of the interaction of these elements.  For Maki, though this imagery is connected to his own life and experiences. His non-representational work is open to interpretation and self-reflection.

Moreover, his interest in mixed media and collage practices have allowed him “the opportunity to solidify my experiences through the forms that I create.  Many of the fractured collage elements have been retrieved from past charcoal and ink studies.”  These paintings are not only multilayered in their compositions, but also reflect an ongoing study of local landscapes that continue to evolve and change over time.
