“RUPTURED LANDSCAPES” paintings by Eva McCauley

March 1 – April 30th, 2024

ROTUNDA GALLERY, Kitchener City Hall,  200 King St. W, Kitchener, ON

Eva McCauley is a painter and printmaker, originally from Kitchener, Ontario.

She invites you to see her exhibition,  “Ruptured Landscapes”, being exhibited at the Rotunda Gallery at Kitchener City Hall during the months of March and April. You’re warmly invited to attend the opening reception on Saturday, March 2nd from 2 to 5 p.m., –  it’d be great to see you!

Since 2012, she has created her paintings and prints in her studio, located in Elmira, Ontario; she also has a studio in Bear River, Nova Scotia, through which a tidal river flows, leading to the ocean. Her work has become increasingly concerned with the impact of climate change, particularly in respect to the oceans.

She is known for vibrant, colourful paintings that seamlessly merge abstraction with figuration. Her paintings are enigmatic and evocative psychological takes on the traditional landscape genre, describing atmospheric, expressive paintings of sky, water and shifting landscapes that incorporate human figures, exploring the passage of time and the transient and ephemeral nature of the spiritual and physical world.

“Ruptured Landscapes”, her current series of oil paintings, explores our relationship with the fragile environment we live in, a world threatened by systematic disintegration and devastation. Her paintings investigate and speak to climate and environmental change, particularly on oceans and shorelines: the sea level is rising, waters are warming, storms are intensifying, lives and communities are at risk.  Conjured partly from memory, partly from photo references, the figures in the paintings uneasily inhabit places that she has explored in the past and present, with a focus on their relationship to bodies of water.

You are cordially invited to attend the opening reception, which will take place on Saturday, March 2nd, from 2 to 5 p.m., and the artist will be present to talk about her work.

To celebrate,  there will be live traditional Irish music at the gallery and refreshments served.  All are welcome! For more information
