The Nano Gallery features Tony Batten
“The Gooderham Building”
Front and Church Streets, Toronto
This landmark structure in the heart of Toronto’s old market area is also known as the Flatiron Building. It has become one of the city’s most beloved heritage structures.
In this luminous painting, Tony Batten, has captured the warmth and charm of Toronto’s heritage against the distant but etherial reality of the modern city.
The warm Victorian brick architecture of the Gooderham Building and the vintage corner wall in the forefront ushers the viewer into the rush and bustle of a busy afternoon near the St. Lawrence Market.
Tony Batten is known for his ability to articulate intricate detail – such as the fire escape zig zagging up the wall of the building while leaving so much unsaid. The viewer is invited to step in and complete the picture – truly engaged and involved. Using the artist’s prerogative, the landmarks are re contextualized to better serve the composition.
