October 18 – November 1, PETLEY JONES GALLERY presents Duncan Regehr: Presence

Posted on 3rd October 2018

The Petley Jones Gallery presents Duncan Regehr: Presence, an exhibition of figurative works selected from two separate series of oil paintings: “Pilgrim” and “Palimpsest”. The exhibition will celebrate the launch of Duncan’s seventh book of visual and literal works, also entitled “Presence”.

“Presence” is Duncan’s latest book of poems and paintings. It is comprised of four sections: Other Selves, Other Lives, Other Loves and Other Souls.

The pictures and written pieces of “Presence” were born from Regehr’s life experiences; inspired by exploration of self, humanity, relationships, and the artists spiritual and cosmic musings. Created at different times from each other: An image of a painting wrought in 2014 is displayed opposite a copy of a poem written in 1972. Their pairing offers scenarios whereby thought, feeling and idea may be observed as a continuum.
