CHRIS TEMPLE - Three Cities
Canadian Art Junkie - 27 February, 2014

Artist Chris Temple has three favorites: New York, Vienna and his native Toronto, all subjects for paintings at an exhibition held this month at Nicholas Metivier Gallery.  He focuses on the sharp angles that intersect with the “barriers and connectors” of an urban landscape – such as bridges and signposts.


“Whether it is daylight or dusk in Temple’s paintings, the shadows and light are always emphasized, articulating the carefully rendered architecture,” exhibition notes say. “The result is a quiet stillness that is often said to be evocative of the work of Edward Hopper or Christopher Pratt.”
