This June, we are thrilled to present I Didn’t Eat The Garnish, the highly anticipated solo exhibition by Toronto painter, Janna Watson. Reflecting on her most recent body of work, the artist states:

"The inspiration for this series is explorative play. I delved to zoom in to the micro-level of my compositions, moving beyond negative space to capture a more granular experience. I paint on the ground to contain the gravity of my watery mixes.  Larger pieces have a more magnetizing draw with their ingredients; when I am over top of a work unfolding, I am both inside of it and a part of it. It is this immersive view that inspired the series. The magic of mid-creation and the impending chemical reactions of subduing pigments are humbling. At times they master me, and I aim to capture this vacillant unfolding.

Perspective needs space, to float at arm's length and at a distance. Indulging is equally important.  Eat cake! Eat the garnish too!"
