Artist Statement and Bio   IN PASSING​ is a body of work that attempts to ponder the fleeting,  seemingly insignificant moments that pass, and the overlooked spaces  we pass through on our way to something else – those facets of urban  life that often lie in between.  “Painting allows me the opportunity to look at things that are  frequently overlooked. I am drawn to the character of everyday objects  and spaces, and the urban landscape in which I live. I have a strong  response to things which are connected to the past, holdovers which are  often ignored or forgotten about altogether. Through a layering of rapid  and gestural application of paint, I seek to depict light and form, while  maintaining a focus on the physicality of mark making and surface.   In this ongoing body of work I seek to explore the character of the  contemporary urban landscape through painting. The layers of organic  and geometric forms, patterns of colour and texture, lines of  architecture, roads and hydro wires express a sense of place shaped by a  history of urban transformation. I am drawn to the spaces and  structures which have served and survived generations but have become  overlooked or entirely forgotten. They are pieces of the urban narrative  so often lost to time and “progress”. Through a responsive and gestural  application of material, my aim is to express the personality of these  frequently disregarded historical facets, fixing them in time.” – Brian  Harvey
