“The Course of a Distant Empire” by Artist Jay Senetchko

Five large-scale paintings influenced by the idea of eternal recurrence by Vancouver-based artist Jay Senetchko. Building from the belief that events are part of a recurring cycle (as opposed to a linear time-line with a definitive end point), the pieces collapse past, present and future into vignettes that oscillate between profession and regression, decadence and destruction. See more images from “The Course of a Distant Empire” below or on display at Winsor Gallery until January 20.
