Arta Gallery is once again proud to present an abstract and figurative show by Toronto based and international artists. Each work will consist of purity associated with reduction of the consistent materials of a medium, of paint and canvas, which are seen as pure. In the end, these tensions are integral to abstraction which is best defined as a category that manages such contradictions. This in effect holds them in suspension, or puts them into dialectical play.
