Black and Gold | Gwen Tooth

September 19 – 30, 2018

A series of acrylic paintings using gold dripping expressions on black background. Viewing this installation evokes emotions and symbols of wealth, drama, mythology and music through operas such as “Der Ring des Nibelungen” by Richard Wagner.


Gwen Tooth is an expressionist painter. She paints to express energy, soul and mood.  She has in recent years completed several series of paintings revealing the various moods and energies of water – whirlpools, waterfalls, and tsunamis.

Her 2016 series “Red Series: Gentle Waterfalls”, was an exhibition of acrylic paintings interpreting gentle waterfalls on red backgrounds. Nature was full of joy once more. Gwen’s 2017 installation project, “Indian Ocean Variations”, exhibited at Propeller in April was a series of acrylic paintings inspired by the many vibrant colours, visual sights, sounds, and scents of India. Gwen’s 2018 installation project, “Black and Gold”, is a series of acrylic paintings using gold dripping expressions on black backgrounds. Viewing this installation evokes emotions and symbols of wealth, drama, mythology and music through operas such as “Der Ring des Nibelungen” by Richard Wagner. 

​Gwen holds a B.A. from Western University, a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) from Ontario College of Art and Design University and a Certificate of Achievement in Fine Arts with Honours from Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning.  She teaches adult classes in acrylic abstraction at Fleming College – Haliburton School of Art and Design as well as experimental drawing and painting at various cultural centres and art groups.
