AWASH IN COLOUR Van­cou­ver painter David Wil­son’s lat­est col­lec­tion of rainy cityscapes may well be his dreami­est yet. That’s be­cause he’s been ex­plor­ing the idea of pho­to­graphic fil­ters in so­cial me­dia. In fact, he’s scanned thou­sands of pho­to­graphs from In­sta­gram and se­lected the im­ages he felt com­pelled to work with in his ex­pres­sive brush­strokes. The re­sult is un­prece­dented play with form, colour, and light, rein­ter­pret­ing im­ages of rain-slicked streets from here and around the world (with May­fair shown here). Check out the show, called In­ter­rupt­ing the In­ter­face, from Thurs­day (September 7) to September 30 at the Ki­moto Gallery.
