LANTERN presents IN OUR NATURE, an exhibition featuring some of Canada's most accomplished realism artists, opening Friday, February 2nd with a public reception from 7-10pm. Behind the undeniable technical skill of the artists, themes of masculinity, sexuality, solitary heroism and public depression re-occur. These four artists approach their work from different emotional corners but their trajectories cross paths. For IN OUR NATURE, contemporary life is stark and isolated within its sad architecture, but is buoyed back by colour, lust, and the celestial forces of lighting both natural and photographic. The title refers to, in a masculine sense, how the naturalism is depicted and the personal ownership of it: our nature, our world. But also it is an adage we supply for how we navigate and reveal the world that we have constructed.

We hope you will join us at LANTERN this upcoming First Friday to open up this amazing exhibition!
