- Constructs: Alex Buchanan, Aug 28 – Sept 9 PHOTO ALBUMARTWORK PREVIEW
Opening Reception: Friday August 28th 2015
Exhibition Dates: Aug 28 – Sept 9, 2015
Lex Buchanan paints scenes of fleeting moments captured in passage. Architectural spaces are presented as nostalgic experiences of the everyday, transformed into visual puzzles that challenge and disorient the viewer. The exhibition “Constructs” is a series of paintings that examine built environments and urban phenomena. Through a pastiche of historical tropes, contemporary culture, architectural forms, painterly gestures, and digital aesthetics Buchanan’s seeks to complicate notions of the contemporary landscape and the urban condition. These canvases challenge viewers in the act of deciphering new scenarios in which physical reality manifests with the ephemera of our own experiences.
Buchanan is an artist, designer, curator and alumnus of the Ontario College of Art and Design where he graduated with honors and received the Bluma Appel award and A.V. Isacc’s scholarship. After a year of post-graduate studies in Florence, Italy Alex obtained an Advanced Certificate of Visual Studies from OCAD. His work has been featured in group and solo exhibitions both locally and internationally. He currently lives and works in Toronto where he continues to exhibit, curate and promote other local artists. Buchanan also manages the Project Gallery Studios, and is a founding member and co-director of Project Gallery.
- No Amount of Logical Anaylsis: Rupert Nuttle: Aug 8-26 PHOTO ALBUMARTWORK PREVIEW
Opening Reception: Saturday Aug 8th (6-10pm)
Exhibition Dates: Aug 8-26, 2015
‘No Amount of Logical Analysis’ is a solo exhibition of paintings and prints by Rupert Nuttle. The works aim to blur the distinctions between art, language, and the natural world by making unlikely connections between different media and styles. The exhibition raises the question: What is it about art that just can’t be analyzed?
Rupert Nuttle is a painter based out of Ottawa and Montreal. He received a BFA from NSCAD University in 2013, and has exhibited works throughout Canada, the United States, and Paris, France. In addition to his studio practice, Rupert publishes essays and reviews on art and culture. At present, he is co-editor of CRIT, a contemporary Canadian art periodical, and in the near future he will be pursuing an MA in Critical Theory and the Arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
Project Gallery Studios is located at 184 Munro St, and accessible through the back entrance at the southeast corner of Blackburn St. and Mount Stephens St. The studio exhibition space is open by appointment only.
