Bewabon Shilling: Between the Forest and the Sky

November 30, 2019 – March 2, 2020

Janice Laking Gallery

Curator: Emily McKibbon

Reception: Thursday, December 5, 7 to 9 pm

This major solo exhibition highlights recent paintings by Bewabon Shilling depicting the forest and skies around his home at Rama Mnjikaning First Nation. Working from the studio built by his late father, the artist Arthur Shilling (1941-1986), the works reveal a landscape refracted through a palette inspired by his father, but rendered in a visual vocabulary that is entirely his own. Heroic in format and presented in the changeful, grey light of the Janice Laking Gallery at midwinter, the paintings suggest a landscape wilder than our ability to comprehend it.

Bewabon Shilling was born in 1977 in Orillia, Ontario. He studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design, where he received both the Norman Jewison Award and the Rose of Cedarvale Scholarship.

He has exhibited at Roberts Gallery, Toronto; the Gary Farmer Gallery, Santa Fe; Orillia Museum of Art and History; and Kensington Fine Art, Calgary.

He is represented by Roberts Gallery, Toronto; the Collectors Gallery, Calgary; and the Darrell Bell Gallery, Saskatoon.
