The Cambridge Galleries presents a solo exhibition by Hamilton artist
Kevin Fraser. Fraser's oil paintings feature both still life and
portraiture. His bug and road kill still lifes in their form and
content recall the diligent recording of the natural world by northern
European artists during the sixteenth century. His portrait figures
emerge from dark grounds that may suggest a psychological vertigo or
existential disembodiment. As a whole, Fraser's work suggests an uneasy
tension between human beings and the natural world we inhabit.
Kevin Fraser is a native of Oakville, Ontario. He received his BFA from
McMaster University in 1997. Most recently Fraser's work has been
featured in a solo exhibition at the Dofasco Gallery at the Dundas
Valley School of Art. This past spring his work was part of a three
person exhibition entitled The Figure: Three Visions, at the Art Gallery
