Join us for an intimate conversation with artist Gordon Shadrach as he discusses the personal and political inspirations for his portraiture. This talk will focus around the major theme of representation. Even as a child watching Saturday morning cartoons, Shadrach was aware of issues of representation in the media. He now confronts this issue with his unique portraiture. The Artist will also expand on his creative process, how he chooses his models, and his other passion, all things sartorial.
A Gordon Shadrach solo show. Shadrach is a portrait artist whose work is now featured at the Royal Ontario Museum and who explores issues of identity within Canada's black community. Shadrach's compelling use of acrylic on wood panel, often finished with antique or salvaged frames creates a brilliant visual and narrative statement.

The collection includes documentary style photography, line drawing and sketch, water colour and spray painting. Works by Alexandre Mavrellis Oktan, Kim Byungkwan, Alex Itin, Anya Mielniczek and Case Mackeen.
