We are pleased to present Niall McClelland’s first solo show with the gallery. The exhibition will contain all new works including the Tapestries, Skins and Stains for which he has begun to gather critical interest in Canada and the United States. McClelland was included, along with Jeremy Jansen, Ellsworth Kelly and Richard Serra, in the group show Black To Back And Light at CR in 2009. Of that exhibition the Globe and Mail surmised that “..the works of Jansen and McClelland are plenty gritty enough to hold up against the Serras and the Kelly. Indeed they demonstrate the same kind of uncompromising bravura.” McClelland (b.1980) grew up in Toronto, spent many of his summers in Northern Ireland, went to school in Vancouver and eight years later returned to Toronto where he now lives.
