Brendan Monroe’s Beautifully Surreal Scenes

Just yesterday, a brand new exhibition started at Cooper Cole gallery in Toronto, Ontario called Observations of Light and Matter. Brendan Monroe tells a story of a world filled with unique personalities and imaginary organisms. His dream-like scenes show human figures on a quest to find out more about the world they inhabit.

Observations of Light and Matter is a way for me to reinterpret the facets of current and past scientific frontiers,” he says. “The work is sometimes directly derived from scientific observations and at other times loosely inspired by them. My purpose is to ask the questions that lead to an understanding of physics in nature all around us.”
