RMGKazuo Nakamura: Universal PatternKazuo Nakamura was a founding member of Painters Eleven (1953-60), Ontario’s first abstract art collective. Nakamura’s fascination with science and mathematics is evident throughout his career through his use of patterns, linear perspectives, and geometric forms. From the earliest landscapes and abstractions to his later mathematical explorations, Nakamura was seeking patterns in nature.

Station GalleryCurator’s Tour: The Inversion Project
Reza Hosseiny | Prowling

Drawing on more than one cultural repertoire, Iranian-born artist Reza Hosseiny has created a cross-cultural dialogue filled with delicacy, grace and astonishing beauty. Hosseiny creates enduring bonds by amalgamating both Western and Middle Eastern concepts, belief systems and visual languages. Through this synthesis of his ancestral homeland and adopted country, he eloquently speaks from the “in-between” of varied social and cultural realities.
Robert Houle | Collage Auto Portrait
Robert Houle is one of the most influential First Nations artists to break into the contemporary art world. Houle went from residential school to art school to museum boardrooms and on to the art world stage as an artist, curator and writer. His work blends abstraction, modernism and conceptualism with First Nations aesthetics and histories. The Collage Auto Portrait suite is an outstanding example of the artist’s experimentation with new print technologies. Each component of this unique suite—only one set was created—has variations in the images and colours, while focusing on the theme of the artist’s indigenous ancestry.
