Celebration – New Works by Rob Niezen at Studio 22 Open Gallery in Kingston

Studio 22 Open Gallery is delighted to present the solo exhibition Celebration – New Works by Rob Niezen.
Peterborough-based artist Rob Niezen marries his disparate influences, comic book art and classic impressionism, to produce graphic oil paintings which entertain and delight.

Incorporating his observations of everyday life, Niezen weaves a visual tale through his imaginatively narrative canvases. Life is rich with colour and experience; time is measured in moments shared with family and friends. Using light and colour, shadows and reflections, Niezen depicts table tops filled with glassware that sparkle and shine, signifying the joy of living life to its fullest.  A true master of painting sunlight — reflected and refracted, direct and indirect — Niezen’s bold use of colour, exaggerated angles, and unique perspectives lend drama to these unexpected images. Like snapshots of a perfect holiday, each canvas takes on the sense of a memento. Celebration is all about savouring life’s experience.

Celebration will be on display at Studio 22, located at 320 King Street East, Kingston from July 11 – August 19.

The opening reception starts at 8:00 pm on Saturday, July 15th.
Come meet the Artists and join us in celebrating the joy that Art brings to our lives.

Two other new summer exhibits will also be opening on July 11:
Kaleidos: Beautiful Forms by Diane Laundy
Baby Baby Don’t Get Hooked On Me: Cameron Schaefer
