Self-Similar, is a solo exhibition of works by painter Ehryn Torrell. Torrell’s large paintings and drawings incorporate visual elements of collapsed and derelict structures, and of remembered cityscapes.
Using the lens of the built environment to explore personal and universal conditions of human experience, Ehryn Torrell’s work in painting examines empathy, contingency, loss and vulnerability.
Self Similar is curated by Robin Metcalfe and Judith Nasby. The exhibition is a co-production of Saint Mary's University Art Gallery with the Macdonald Stewart Art Centre, Guelph, Ontario.
