Jeff Nye: Recovery Rooms Exhibition

September 24, 2016 – January 8, 2017

Location: Varley Art Gallery
216 Main Street Unionville map 

Jeff Nye's paintings are physical explorations of loss and memory; his work reflecting upon the ways in which time and emotion distorts our relationships to the built environment. Each work featured in Recovery Rooms depicts abstracted elements of both domestic and institutional spaces, settings of particular significance to the artist, including homes, workspaces and hospital rooms. Architectural details, such as walls, windows and floorboards seemingly appear and disappear from these canvases, caught somewhere between the remembered past and the physical present.

This project is part of right here|right now. Launched in 2014, this initiative aims to foster the work of contemporary artists in York Region by providing them with exhibition opportunities and ongoing professional development.

Drawing on the Jack MacQuarrie Collection, and supplemented by works from the Varley Art Gallery’s permanent holdings, this exhibition explores the recurring compositional building blocks of rock, water, tree, among others. Combined in numerous ways to produce the iconic images of the Group of Seven, they offer a surprising range of mood and meaning.
