Touching Reality
Richard Herman, Ben van Netten, Bruce Woycik and Toni Onley
- July 11 - 22, 2007



With Nature as the common denominator, distinctive styles emerge with artists Ben van Netten, Richard Herman, Bruce Woycik and the late Toni Onley.

Richard Herman's work, influenced by the crisp form and transparent colour of ealrly Flemish and German painters, focuses on landscapes and studies of clouds.

Dealing with the mechanism of perception, Ben van Netten explores how we see, finding gaps in our visual and psychological reality, drawing on technology to achieve his definitive images.

Perhaps best known for his approach to illumination, Bruce Woycik's paintings, suffused with a distinctive manipulation of light, create an alluring drama of radiance and shadow.
Toni Onley, one of the most widely known painters of BC, combined a traditional British watercolour technique with modernist abstract form and original brush painting to invent a unique vision of landscape.
