KATHRYN BEMROSE
"A Manner of Speaking"

February 3 – 24, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 3, 2018, 2:00 to 4:00pm
Yumart Gallery

"A completed composition always leaves a question. And so I go to the next painting in answering the last one however it inevitably comes up with a new question. Before you know it, there is a body of work asking and answering ad infinitum. The last painting always leaves an unanswered question." – Kathryn Bemrose

Kathryn Bemrose is known for her abstract colour compositions, painting visceral works with raised surfaces in oils. Her lifelong quest has been to continually reinvent her expression, never becoming staid or predictable. Artists as diverse as Francis Bacon and Richard Diebenkorn have influenced her.

Bemrose has exhibited in many private and public galleries. She was represented by Christopher Cutts Gallery in Toronto and had several solo exhibitions there. Her work was co-exhibited with Tom Hodgson [Painters Eleven]. Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery presented a ten-year retrospective of her work in 1999 and the Art Gallery of Mississauga mounted a large solo exhibition in 2002. Bemrose was featured with Ray Mead [Painters Eleven] in the exhibition "Paint and Ink: The Tools of Kathryn Bemrose and Ray Mead" (2002) at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Oshawa and the Frederick Horseman Varley Museum, Markham.

Kathryn Bemrose paintings are in numerous Canadian and international collections. She continues her practice from her studio in Toronto, Ontario.
