New Year, New Mural
As 2015 draws to a close, it felt like a good time to freshen things up at our showroom. Coincidentally, acclaimed mural artist Fintan Magee, a practitioner whose creative and flawlessly executed work is a huge inspiration to us, is in town so we asked him to do us the honour of creating one of his works on our exterior wall.
The piece he created is titled ‘The Paper Trail’ and depicts a main waist-deep in water, a common theme in Fintan’s art holding a large paper boat in his hands. The bleached sky and wistful look on the subject’s face evoke feelings of calm and, at the same time, nervousness. It’s simply beautiful and we are very happy with it.
Fintan’s Water World exhibition at Backwoods Gallery in Collingwood opened on December 4 and has been receiving rave reviews. We encourage everyone to go and see the exhibition as well as stopping by to visit our new piece of outdoor art. We’re pretty proud of it, as you might have noticed.
