On the Shores of the Sea of Endless Worlds

by Eli Gross

Date: Dec 2 – Dec 22Space: Mezzanine

CAN is honoured to welcome an artist who has brought his passion and paintings all the way from Israel.  His beautiful seascapes are bringing a feeling of peace, playfullness and joy to our Mezzanine Gallery from 2-22 December 2022

“Fifty years of world-wide career went by, up to the moment I decided that I had to preserve the fragments of my experiences related to distant places and people that I live and love, as I see them.

I give the painting brush the freedom of speech – the creation of the whole out of fragments of my memories and as an answer to my deep, primal need to paint.
So far away … The beaches where we spent time together, and yet so close … They are always with me. And yet so close … I conjure you from my imagination, in streams of colour, onto the canvas.  So far away … you can reach the end of the world …

But as long as I have your love … you are always close.” Eli Gross

Join us to celebrate Eli’s far flung Exhibition on Friday, 2 December 5-7pm
