Backstories: The Researching Artist as Traveller & Interviewer
Andrew Cheddie Sookrah’s vast and varied practice is rooted in geographic exploration and spiritual expression. He is inspired by the essence of a place, the spirit of its peoples, and the inseparable connections they have to each other and the natural world.
Backstories: The Researching Artist as Traveller & Interviewer exhibits paintings, drawings, and sculptures taken from Sookrah’s life as both traveller and artist. Recognized for his bright and expressive technique, Sookrah takes us on a journey through rivers, lands, and into the intimate solitaries of his studio during a time of limited movement; The COVID-19 pandemic. Harnessing media as a tool for visual communication, Sookrah presents an internal dialogue that reflects upon his subjects and their deeper societal connections. In observing his work, viewers are privy to an underlying social commentary that is carefully interlaced into the threads of his canvas.
This exhibition is on view from May 11 – July 8, 2022. Visit the gallery at our temporary location at the Aurora Town Hall (second floor), 100 John West Way, Aurora. Walk-in visits are welcomed during Gallery Hours: Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10:00 am - 3:00 pm.
