Eli Bornowsky isn’t sure if the next week is going to be fortuitous or bad, but he sure is stressed out. The Vancouver artist is presenting 10 new abstract works at Blanket Contemporary Art Inc, as well as opening a show he curated at Or Gallery.

Both shows deal with the artist’s conviction towards a particular kind of subjective experience. It’s an experience he feels abstraction does quite well.

“It has to do with thinking about your sensing, thinking about your thinking, and experiencing your experience,” says Bornowsky. “It’s also a difficult experience, which I find challenging. And that challenge is important for looking at art.”
