Hot Art: Ric Evans Draws Inspiration from Rocks

Ric Evans' Instrument Set at Nicholas Metivier Gallery

MAY 24 TO JUNE 16 Colour, shape, texture, space; these are among the foundational tools of painting, and Ric Evans wields them with equal parts creativity and discipline. This month the Toronto artist, one of the country’s preeminent practitioners of geometric abstraction, presents his most recent works at Nicholas Metivier Gallery. Though true to a style honed by Evans over more than three decades, these latest canvases and shaped-panel pieces—such as Instrument Set—strike an almost naturalistic tone, inspired as they are by the rugged yet ever-detailed landscapes of northern Ontario.
