The Gallery at L.E. Shore is pleased to present Duotone, featuring Kim Collins and Eric Tremblay! The show runs from November 4-29. Enjoy the virtual tour below!
At the intersection of illustration and design, this exhibition features a variety of works from the creative careers of a character illustrator and a graphic designer. Pieces range from full-colour spectrum landscapes, inspired still life, detailed character illustrations, abstracted fabric art and recycled content sculptures - truly a mixed-media symbiosis.
If you are interested in purchasing a piece, you can visit us in person, call 519-599-3681 or email TheGallery@TheBlueMountains.ca. Please call ahead prior to visiting in person to ensure that the Gallery space is available for walkthroughs.
I’m Eric Tremblay and I’m a bonafide, ratified illustrator. I draw paint and model all sorts of stuff but if you’ve got games you need made, I’ve got the brains to do it. If you need 3-D models textured, built, or rigged, I’ve got the skills to make that happen. You want fancy-dancy concept illustration? I’ve gotchu. I can draw a goblin, a knight, or anything your heart desires with ease. I’m a Photoshop-slinging, C4D using, Procreate-drawing Canadian with a deep dedication for my craft. I do the drawing so you don’t have to.
Originally from Ravenna, Kim is a multidisciplinary artist and graphic designer residing in Niagara. After graduating, Kim specialized in bike design by working for a distributor. Her career in consumer products has yielded design excellence for major cycling brands such as Schwinn, Mongoose, GT, Cannonade and Raleigh. Visit the bike department at Canadian Tire to see her latest two-wheeled works.
Kim operates a solo art and graphic design practice that provides creative assets to local and international clients. Her illustrations have graced the covers of catalogues, packaging and instruction manuals. In 2020 her “Rad Dad” illustration was selected as the cover for Princess Auto’s special anniversary edition.
As a sustainability artist, Kim up-cycles mixed materials to create artworks in 2 and 3 dimensions for exhibition, commission and public artwork projects.
“I am particularly interested in projects with themes of environmental sustainability. My goal is to challenge people’s perception of waste culture by using recycled materials and ultimately inspire conservation. An appreciation for animals and the natural world can be attributed to my childhood on the farm. My talented grandmother taught me how to sew by mending clothing and reassigning value to discarded items by re-purposing.”
Kim has a B. Des from York University/Sheridan College and a B. Ed (Visual Art) from Nipissing University. She has exhibited her work in Thornbury, Collingwood, Haliburton, Waterloo, St. Catherines, Burlington, Mississauga and Toronto.
