Overview

A 3-time RBC Painting Competition finalist, Everingham performs as architect and painter, intuitively dismantling and rebuilding structures and environments using the language of paint. Fictional yet familiar space and light are tools to represent illusory depth that is rooted in formal abstraction. Exhibitions include Cambridge Galleries, General Hardware Contemporary, The Power Plant, Patrick Mikhail Gallery, Tom Thomson Art Gallery, and The National Gallery of Canada. Collections include RBC Collection, TD Bank Collection, and NBC.
