Andrew Dadson and Jonathan Syme exhibit new works that explore the materiality of paint through distinct methods of layering. Syme uses linear elements of saturated colour to draw the eye into his optically rich fields of algorithmic-like abstraction. In contrast, Dadson’s work is mute and calm by nature with subtle evidence of the layers of colour and texture that make up the final effaced surface; both allowing the viewer to enter the void and explore the liminal space between.

Andrew Dadson lives and works in Vancouver. He is represented by Galleria Franco Neoro, Torino and has exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Art | Basel (Switzerland), the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Seattle Art Museum, the Power Plant Gallery, and Museion Bolzano (Italy). He received a BFA from ECUAD in 2003.
