Exhibition by Danielle Roberts (Nov. 9-30, 2018)

Danielle Roberts’ solo exhibition Latent Echo opens at HAVN. Latent Echo is a solo exhibition of new paintings of public spaces at night. “I am curious about painting public spaces that rely on nostalgia and self referential ideas to engage the public”.

Danielle Roberts is a painter from British Columbia newly arrived in Hamilton. This exhibition features work created during her summer/fall residency with The Hamilton Arts Council at The Cotton Factory. The production and exhibition of this series of paintings is funded by “The Dean Collection 20 St(Art) Up” grants from Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys. Latent Echo is part of the ongoing "Dean Collection 20 St(Art) Up” grant competition.

Latent Echo explores constructed environments that direct certain behaviours and values onto participants. “I see the intention of the created spaces that I paint as acting with a kind of phantasmagoria. I find phantom influences hidden in commonality to be captivating and I seek to unpack such influences by reinterpreting real facades into painting”. Her work focuses on subject matter that relies on the economy of experience. Some of the landscapes depicted in this exhibition are arcades, churches, movie theatre interiors, and bowling alley interiors. “I find that these are spaces that are well lit against dark. Each have a captivating aspect to their choice of lighting that suggests a unique mood.”
