Toronto artist Luke Painter produces large-scale fictional landscapes rendered with India ink and brush on paper that resemble traditional wood engravings.
The surreal outdoor spaces lack a human presence, and create an unsettling sense of eeriness and loneliness.
“The repetition, use of ornament and laborious aspect of mark-making within the works is important for referencing this traditional use of woodblock.” –LE Gallery
