GREGORY HOSKINS with TINA NEWLOVE: ILLUMINATE ME: A Concert and Live Painting Performance. Two nights: Thursday / Friday, December 1 & 2: 8:00pm. $25 door. A concert presentation of songs from acclaimed Canadian recording artist Gregory Hoskins set against a larger-than-life canvas being painted by Tina Newlove and projected over the singer. The evening begins with Hoskins under the stark light of the projected canvas and ends drowning in colour and form. The songs of Hoskins are cool and warm and sorrowful and hopeful all at the same time and the paintings of Newlove are organic and grounded, abstract just enough to make them otherworldly but recognizable. The interactions between painter and singer are unrehearsed and the outcome is unplanned as he makes his way through solo renditions of the songs (with a dose of the “between song asides" he is known for) and Newlove’s projected “Hand of God" applies colour in all its’ drippy mess. The audience gets a taste of the chaos that can lead to form. And that is where the two meet. www.gregoryhoskins.com www.tinanewlove.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmmUmr0EBKY
