Many of you already know that I have purchased a huge building at 1167 Cannon Street East in Hamilton's up and coming Ottawa St. neighbourhood! It's an old industrial building that I will be renovating into a large new gallery on the main floor with my living space on the 2nd floor. It is being designed by Toms + McNally!

I'm all moved out of Glenfern Ave. and I have set up a temporary gallery in the new space while we renovate the rest of the building. You can still view and purchase prints here. I accept cash, credit card or debit. Come by for a visit and see the building while it's still in it's raw state!

By now it’s a surprise to no one that the city of Hamilton is in a significant state of transformation. Just consider the number of artists whose work is devoted to the changing face of its skyline, its neighbourhoods, and its urban nodes. With featured works from Paul Elia, Stephen Brookbank, Gord Leverton and David Trautrimas, this exhibition presents a range of perspectives on our city’s urban spaces, and the delicate, beautiful balance that often exists between its industrial vestiges, heritage architecture, and civic revival.

Opening Reception on Fri. Jan 13th
Show runs until April 29th 2017.

September Art Crawl review by Stephanie Vegh

"Though I haven’t visited often this past year, I was drawn into Socald Studio Gallery in spite of the pervasive jazz flute to take in Paul Elia’s Hamilton Strip series of digital prints. In addition to his exceptional though nowadays widely distributed images of Hamilton streetscapes - you can see some stonking huge ones at Stonewall’s Restaurant down York Boulevard - Elia has expanded his repertoire to include other cities in the Ontario rustbelt, some of which include the use of select, muted colours. At present I’m not seeing quite the same visual richness in these views of other cities - there’s a reduced range of values that makes these buildings appear flatter than their uncanny Hamilton counterparts - but I remain glad to see the series evolving in a larger direction."

BRAND NEW piece in the Hamilton Strip series - The Century Theatre

This is an image I have been working on for the Hamilton Strip series for the past few months. The source photos were taken in December 2008. For those of you who don't know, this building is being torn down as I type this. It is truly sad to think that the building will be gone just as I finally finished this piece in honour of such a striking building.

Hamilton Strip review
by Stephanie Vegh

"The body of work for which I was witnessing the most enthusiastic audience response for the night wasn’t related to ReMix at all, but rather was on display at Mixed Media in both the main space of the shop and its small gallery alcove. Paul Elia’s Hamilton Strip is a relatively simple undertaking - digital drawings of local streetscapes adapted from photographs - but the images achieve a great deal by skillfully negotiating a medium that is too often used with no skill at all to depict an otherworldly imaginative space. The wide panoramas fusing together several photographs to create a single source image read as narratives to a graphic novel or a film noir of Hamilton and illustrate the strange confluence of structures that can share a single street address in this city, from industrial shells to family homes."
