Coldstream Fine Art is pleased to present new work by Toronto-based painter Izaak Sacrebleu in his second solo exhibition, Victorian Revival. Drawing his subject matter for the most part from art and design history, Sacrebleu’s work serves as a dialogue between the tropes of contemporary painting and our generation’s tendency to dwell on nostalgic imageries. The result is a body of work that poses nostalgia as a symptom of the reluctance to our newfound excess of information.

Victorial Revival shows from Aug 10th - Sep 16th

Through haphazard brushstrokes and the repurposed nature of many of his references and materials, Izaak Sacrebleu’s work questions traditional modes of art making and viewing. Sacrebleu received his Bachelor or Fine Arts from OCAD in 2014. Steadily exhibiting since, Sacrebleu’s work has been acquired by several collections, most notably the permanent collection of Mercedes-Benz. In the last three years his work has received notable press, including topping BlogTO’s 2016 10 up and coming artists you should know. Sacrebleu lives and works between Toronto’s west end and its Stockyards district.
