Tiko Kerr

Tiko Kerr : Affinities







Recognized for his vibrant paintings of Vancouver's iconic architecture and natural locales, Tiko Kerr made a radical shift in his practice in 2014 when he began to utilize collage in the production of mixed media works. These in turn have fundamentally refocused his approach to painting, producing complex and vibrant images, referencing both contemporary digital media and key modern artists and art movements Central to all his new painting is the notion of images and concepts coming together in a collage-like fashion and the way in which forms find affinities with and impact each other, creating new arrangements which can reinforce or diverge from their significance to the original source material.

This exhibition is presented as a celebration of Pride Vancouver and in recognition of artistic creativity as a force that can both reflect and transcend group and individual histories
