New work by Chris Temple
Chris Temple, Homage to Hugh and Dot Mackenzie, 49.5 x 39.5 inches, ACQUIRE
Chris Temple's latest painting is a beautiful homage to Bau-Xi Gallery artist Hugh Mackenzie and his late wife, Dorothy Mackenzie.
Chris Temple has exhibited extensively across Canada, and is featured in prominent collections of institutions such as the Art Gallery of Mississauga, the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Price Waterhouse Toronto, the University of Lethbridge, Alberta, and the Canada Council Art Bank.
A graduate of the Ontario College of Art, Chris Temple has been capturing the complexity and sublimity of Canada’s urban environments for over 30 years. Indeed, Temple describes himself as a “landscape painter” whose fascination with the urban has prompted explorations all over North America and Europe in search of the “urban core compression, intricate infrastructure, and industrial decay that [he] finds so interesting to ponder.” Temple’s technically precise paintings render the cityscape as something both strong and delicate, familiar yet mysterious, and always reverent of contemporary landscape as an endless source of visual interest.
