Fear, hope and Love art exhibit by Mark Henson
from: 10/23/09 to12/23/09
Location: Toronto, Canada
Description: Meta Gallery is pleased to present Fear Hope and Love, an exhibition of works on canvas by Mark Henson. In his first solo exhibition with the gallery, as well as his first in Canada, the artist explores highly relevant themes in today?s socio-political climate. Through these detailed and intricate narrative works, a story unfolds, one where the antagonist becomes the heroin as we realize that even though we may be the problem, we are also the only solution. Upon first encounter of Henson?s works, one is awestruck by the sheer size and scale of many of the intricately painted and highly detailed canvases. A complex and multi-layered story envelops the viewer with a profound sense of the very grave and very real way in which humanity has neglected to take care of the planet, and each other. In Sharing the Wealth, a handsome man and his beautifully blond companion cruise down the street in their red convertible in a very Vegas-esque landscape, glittering and spark!
