Clear as day, there are two objects confronting each other. One, set farther away, is perhaps a reflection or memory of the other, darker, form. It’s unclear if they are in conflict or engaging in affection, but it’s as if they need to communicate, separated by a blurred chasm. On the periphery the structures prevent passage yet offer a glimpse of a contextual narrative. Amidst the activity, this moment is quiet and still.

The works in Of Logic and Gravity use abstract paint language to describe a certain experience that is loosely and paradoxically related to our reality and perception. Each hopes to establish a strange and yielding utopia in which to enter, explore, and determine.

Everingham holds a BFA from NSCAD University in Halifax, and an MFA from the University of Waterloo. He is a 3-time RBC Canadian Painting Competition Finalist with exhibitions at The Power Plant (Toronto), the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa) and Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. He is the recipient of numerous awards including the Jon Imber Painting Award from the Vermont Studio Centre, Canada Council, Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council. Everingham has received recognition for his work from several publications such as The Toronto Star, Canadian Art Magazine, The Globe and Mail, The Magenta Foundation, Juxtapoz Magazine, The National Post, Studio Beat, and NOW Magazine. His work is included in many private and corporate collections such as TD Bank Collection, RBC Corporate Collection, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Welch LLP, Cadillac Fairview, and the Tom Thompson Art Gallery. Everingham exhibits internationally with recent exhibitions at the Torrance Art Museum (Los Angeles), Field Projects (New York) and Beers London (UK). Art fairs include The Armory Show (New York), Art Chicago, and Art Toronto. Everingham lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
