Ted Oster, "Untitled," acrylic on paper, 15" X 12".
Opening November 21, 2009, Wah-Sa Gallery, Winnipeg
There’s a haunting quality to Ted Oster’s paintings — in place of eyes, his animals have large, round voids. Oster, a Winnipeg-based artist originally from northeast Ontario, believes the eyes represent the spirit, and can’t be duplicated. He paints small dots, evidence of the earth that pulls every living creature in, into each of his animal portraits. Opening November 21, see Oster’s unique, stylized Woodland paintings at Winnipeg’s Wah-Sa Gallery.
