James Lorincz

ACAD alumni James Lorincz will be showing recent works at the Midtown Gallery 9250 Macleod Trail SE. The opening is this Saturday from 2-6 pm.


“I love the challenge of striving to capture the figure in paint. Whether in a portrait, scene, or moment in time, the use of the human form to portray the intangibles, for me, the most rewarding type of expression. These most recent works have fostered a new appreciation and exploration of the endless benefits of working in oil. Some of these works incorporate layers of various stages of development and all, hopefully, retain some of the energy and spontaneity of alla prima painting.”

MAY. 8 – MAY 31, 2014
