Abstract painter Katie Pretti's latest exhibition at Neubacher Shor Contemporary is a beautifully expressive meditation on the feeling of being in transit. Her large canvases capture the confusion and displacement Pretti feels as she travels endlessly from place to place, with no opportunity to feel completely at home. The organic line and soft, swirling brushwork project a ghostly, roaming presence, leading the eye, like Pretti, to travel around and around each piece, never permitted to rest or unwind.
"Katie Pretti: Swoon," Neubacher Shor Contemporary, Toronto, ON. Through November 24, 2012.
