Exhibition:

Outskirts presents a selection of intimate watercolour and gouache paintings by Kitchener artist Robert Achtemichuk that were completed between 2004 - 2013. The paintings depict scenes derived from his neighbourhood, often offering perspectives from his backyard or an upper window in his house. Remote streets, rooftops, garages, and hydro lines rise and fall against dusty night skies, bright moons, and sparkling street lamps. The moody, sometimes lonely, atmospheres shift and change, continuously evoking an experience of the first moment of encounter.
