OPENING RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: MAY 4th, 6:00-8:00 PM

“I always paint the truth…for me the image is the vehicle to encourage and enable people to feel and think about their emotions”

Mackenzie Thorpe

AFA Gallery is pleased to present Reflections, an exhibition of more than a dozen original new works on paper together with a new limited edition print and two brand new sculptures.

Working with oil pastels on paper or in bronze and chrome to create sculpture both small scale and monumental, Mackenzie Thorpe masterfully captures the small pleasures and silent beauties of our every day. Thorpe is deeply connected to his craft and to his subject matter, through which he expresses his most intimate emotions, indeed, his soul. Often praised for his “indomitable spirit”, Thorpe’s newest work embodies a spirit newly revived and invigorated. Reflections serves as Thorpe’s triumphant return to the work that so enlivens him, by reflecting his recent struggle with cancer and his journey to remission. Today, that joy stands front and center, in this exhibition, Reflections.
