Paradise Lost: Dillon Douglas and Chris Louis

September 27, 2023 - April 18, 2024, Art Gallery Exterior Banners  


Niagara-region artists Dillon Douglas and Chris Louis combine their painterly imagery in Paradise Lost, a tryptic digital composition where a healthy, verdant planet Earth turns into a wasteland.  Packed with repetitive and overlapping motifs, both comical and strange, Douglas and Louis take us on a humbling journey of human failure – on a monumental scale – to caution us of a bleak future of our own making. 

Curated by Sharona Adamowicz-Clements.
