Paintorialism at Initial Gallery
Bodies intertwine as we look at them from above in East Vancouver artist Thomas Anfield’s sensuous, humanistic new works. Walking into his solo show—titled Paintorialism—at Granville Street’s Initial Gallery is a bit like getting a warm embrace. Works like The Picnic, shown here, bring together all the influences of the artist’s varied career, from his work in butoh dance to his time as a muralist. The exhibition runs till February 8.
