The 14 small canvases included in Brennan Hinton’s show are immediate observations of his surrounding environment. Painted between March and May 2020, the jewel-like paintings record the changes of Toronto’s night sky and intimate moments from his daily life during Covid-19.

Editors' Comment

I first became aware of Kieran Brennan Hinton’s work when he was shortlisted for the 2018 RBC Canadian Painting Competition. Educated at the Pratt Institute and holder of Yale MFA, he creates paintings of interior spaces that strike me as layered and evocative. Though he’s been primarily based in the US of late, it’s great to get an opportunity to see more of his work in (and from) a Canadian locale. And with an increasing number of folks spending more time indoors this spring, this artist’s approach to interiors may take on new meanings right now, too. —Leah Sandals
