Egg Tempera, Gallery House

In this series of works Debra Tate Sears environments and compositions continue to be a common thread and are embedded with personal stories handed down by the artist’s parents and grandparents, documenting life in Old Toronto neighbourhoods and small towns throughout Ontario, Canada.

"Though my subjects are often based on specific models, my compositions are created in studio through concept drawings to preliminary sketches, from cartoon to prepared panel. I manipulate and create setting and atmosphere using a composite of architectural types or created interiors. My singular approach to egg tempera is influenced by early 19th century British watercolourists, and through the rediscovery of the medium by North American realist painters working in the second half of the 20th century. The works presented in this exhibition can fall into these two categories:

"Spires, Rooftops and Chimney Pots", and "Quiet, Contemplative Corners".
