Exhibition: Luke Painter’s “Anterior” at Le Gallery

Later this year, in November, members of The Ministry of Artistic Affairs will be visiting the studio of Toronto artist Luke Painter.  Painter’s current exhibition, “Anterior”, is on view at Le Gallery in Toronto.  The show presents a series of mostly very-large drawings made laboriously with india-ink on rich archival paper, all of which display Painter’s impressive use of line as he explores themes of historic architecture and industrialization. Writing in Canadian Art magazine, Mariam Nader discusses how this exhibition “could be viewed as a study of the broader scope of ornamental art history, and the painstaking hours of production as an act of visual research.”
