    ICON: SoTeeOh

    April 27 – May 14, 2017

    What are the symbols that are immediately and universally identifiable as Toronto icons? As Toronto’s reputation grows, and global awareness of the city rises, a set of visual identifiers has been developed that symbolize this city both locally and abroad. The CN Tower has long been the most obvious icon but views of the downtown core popularized by urban photographers, the Raptors jersey made famous by Vince Carter and signage at Yonge and Bloor subway station which is passed by 400 000 commuters on a daily basis have become important symbols of the city.

    ICON will focus on photography of visual identifiers that residents can place at first glance and that out-of-towners recognize as distinctly Toronto. Drawing off personal experience, historical research, anecdotal experiences, commercial products and pop culture references such as movies and music videos, soteeoh has created a set of images that represent the visual identity of the city. With a diversity of photographs, ranging from iconic product photos, recognizable city views and intersections, cultural landmarks and people. This exhibition continues SoTeeOh’s exploration of Toronto’s developing visual identity through portrait, still-life, product, and urban landscape photographs.

    SoTeeOh is a Toronto-based photographer focused on stylized views of daily urban life. Drawing inspiration from the realms of design, architecture, and fashion, he creates images that share a sense of urban grit through an emphasis on symettry, pattern, and color. SoTeeoh has amassed a significant following, with over 60 thousands followers on instagram, he has also worked on commercial projects with notable brands like Adidas, Nike, Sony, CIBC, American Express, Red Bull, and many more. SoTeeOh is represented by Art Works Consulting.

  • Levels: Andre Kan – April 7-23

    Larx_24inx36in_2017Opening Reception: Friday April 7th 6-9pm (RSVP)
    Exhibition Dates: April 7 – 23, 2017

    ARTWORK CATALOG

    Enlivened by his interest in spacial structures and interconnectivity, Andre Kan’s paintings serve as excitable blueprints for a possible reality. Each work depicts the artists’ signature imaginative building blocks that converge and begin to build upon each other and strengthening each other towards an ever transforming space. Kan’s structures are substantial and complex but not yet anchored – they float suspended in his psychological space. In this way Kan’s buildings remain a playful proposition for the viewer not yet tied to a specific place or function. With his dynamic formations, Kan propels us towards an ever optimistic future where new connections and constructions have yet to materialize.

    Kan’s most recent body of work, ‘Levels’ sets the stage as an optical course between the viewer and the artist. The works depict architectural interpretations that no longer rely on a single or double vantage point, but rather the multiple view points of a landscape as a whole. Through geometric deciphering- these playful, interconnected structures suggests what possibility means through self discovery, and the stages of questioning the fundamental nature of being and the world that encompasses it.

    Andre Kan is a Toronto based painter. Since graduating from the Ontario College of Art & Design University in 2014, he continues his creative pursuits as an Artist, Photographer, Curator, Producer, and Musician. His paintings have been showcased throughout Canada with permanent collections in the U.S and China.

    Curio – New Work by Megan Ellen MacDonald

    Moon_II

    ‘Still Life with Moon II’, 24″x30″, oil on linen, 2016

    Exhibition Dates: March 16 – April 2, 2017

    Reception: Thursday March 16th 6-9pm (RSVP)

     

    Megan Ellen MacDonald’s oil paintings have one foot in the 18th century and the other in the 21st. MacDonald appropriates romantic and baroque themes to firmly ground her work in the context of lavish genre painting, setting the stage for her colourful depictions of mass market disposable decoration and kitsch subject matter. Her work playfully questions the very nature of representational painting in the past and present – the impossible task of portraying reality when so much of what we consider as realism is often confused with the unreal.
    MacDonald’s most recent body of work, Curio, removes her subject matter from the grandiose landscapes they usually inhabit, and presents them in the more intimate context of still life. Fascinated by the innately useless nature of decorative objects – specifically those relating to domesticity and femininity, MacDonald takes subjects like knock-off fabergé eggs and mass produced decorative teacups and situates them as the objets de vertu of her still life paintings. Surrounded by fleshy fruits and lavish fabrics, a tarnished sugar bowl becomes a cauldron spilling pink smoke, and a cheap unicorn figurine becomes an elegant statue, all doused in a colourful haze of fantasy. By mirroring the visual opulence of her predecessors, MacDonald’s paintings give these decorative objects the illusion of grandeur and importance, and create a visual narrative all their own.
    Megan Ellen MacDonald is an artist living and working in Toronto, ON. MacDonald received her BFA from OCADU in 2013 and has exhibited work in Toronto and Montreal. Her work has been featured in art fairs including The Artist Project and Art Toronto​, and auctions including Art With Heart and the upcoming Art Gems.

  • Where No One Will Find Us – Alli Boddy Solo Exhibition

    Exhibition: Fri, February 3 – Sun, February 26
    Reception: Fri, February 3 6-10pm

    Alli Boddy’s solo exhibition ‘Where No One Will Find Us’ explores the intersection of figure and landscape. Inspired by her personal connection to nature, her figure/landscape narratives represent the lived experience. Her subjects, which include herself and those close to her, all appear to exude a freedom of spirit. Alli is a strong believer in nature’s ability to transcend and portrays her subjects not gazing at the viewer, but focused in their own moment, venturing off into forests or teetering on cliff’s edge.
