LOWER GALLERY

 

Aurora Pagano, “Immersed”
Opening Night Reception: Wednesday, November 20
Exhibition Dates: Wednesday, November 20 – Friday, January 3

“Immersed” is a collection of paintings and drawing by Toronto artist, Aurora Pagano. The works invite the viewer to dive into the wet and wondrous metropolis of the ocean for an extraordinary adventure. Pagano presents the awkward, fragile, devoted and beautiful creatures as they risk predators, displacement, fight for dominance, and establish social structures while facing extinction. Pagano calls us to connect with those born privileged and those who live to serve the most daunting of creatures. Remarkably, nature has duplicated itself above and below the water’s surface. Come find your twin within the depths of the sea; you’ll find we’re not so different after all.
