The Waterfall Building Presents: "LAST RITES" Our 10th solo exhibition of the year, featuring the work of Vancouver Island based artist Mitchell Villa.
"LAST RITES" is a collection of work that focuses on the human condition, with an emphasis on imminent final moments. The artist found beauty in the undesirable and combined the most climactic seconds of a situation into a singular snapshot. The intensity of his subject matter is enhanced by the application of paint and his bold colour palette. Through smears of paint and layered images, he is able to force movement and energy into a static surface.
Friday the 13th
May 13-15 , 2016
Untitled Art Space
436 Columbia Street
Friday the 13th is a collaborative project by artists Christian Whiticar and Mitchell Villa. The two grew up on Vancouver Island together and have been friends since childhood. Their long history of skating, painting, rock & roll and general tom foolery can be recognized throughout both of their work while each maintaining a specific style unique to them as individuals. From their respective cities, Mitchell in Victoria and Christian in Vancouver, the artists have created two large scale collaborative installations that are site-specific to Untitled Art Space. The exhibition will also include acrylic paintings the artists have been working on individually for the past several months. Friday the 13th is representative of the artists' friendship in it's portrayal of individual, self exploration and simultaneous shared experience.
