Michael Pittman
- Terrible Creatures

Location: Grand Falls-Windsor, NL

Visual artist Michael Pittman is following up his 2016 exhibition, Almost Ghosts held at the Abbozzo Gallery in Toronto, with a new collection of work, funded through the Professional Project Grants Program, called Terrible Creatures. This new series will use the process of klecksography (the art of making images from inkblots) as an entry point and Pittman is exploring ink drawing and abstraction while investigating the notion of "monsters" through imagery. He feels the Almost Ghosts collection has influenced the direction of this new body of work that is leading him to investigate his own fears and anxieties associated with contemporary society. The resulting collection from this project will be part of a solo exhibition that will take place in The Leyton Gallery in 2018.
