    Exhibition Dates: Thu, February 25 – Sun, March 13

    Lauren Pelc-McArthur’s art practice responds to the melding of visual culture with digital technology, challenging the boundaries of digital art and traditional painting. Her interdisciplinary approach begins with the conventional organizing principles of portraits and landscapes, yet these principles are present in vague forms and broken into fragments, one mark disrupts another and competes for space with a third. Bold colours are used to tantalize and repel – resembling neurons that fire like neon lights as viewers cycle through headlines, listicles, and infinite scrolls. Fluctuating between various styles of painting, Pelc-McArthur unsettles the boundaries of figuration and abstraction to articulate the feelings of ‘sensory overload’ that are derived from the endless consumption of digital information.

    Born in 1989, Lauren Pelc-McArthur is an emerging artist from Toronto. Graduating from the Ontario College of Art & Design (2012) with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Drawing and Painting, Pelc-McArthur responds to various facets of technology and internet culture through painting, sculpture and 3-D animation. Recipient of an emerging visual artist grant from the Toronto Arts Council in 2014, she has participated in International and Canadian residencies including the Roundtable Residency in Toronto.

    Opening Reception: February 4, 6-10pm

    Exhibition Dates: Thu, February 4 – Sun, February 21

    chordata is an exhibition of new drawings by Brett Despotovich which investigate resonance and interference, harmony and discord.
    Continuing with the direction of his previous exhibitions (the fall) (2014) and Black is the Ultimate, Black Eclipses Everything (2015), the work in chordata is informed by the intersecting points of his scientific and mythological interests.

    Born in Toronto, Ontario in 1982, Despotovich studied at OCADU (2001-05), followed by his involvement with the production of FLicKeR, a multi-award winning feature-length NFB/BRAVO! documentary directed by Nik Sheehan. His debut solo exhibition (the fall) was reviewed by Benjamin Bruneau for Magenta Magazine, and he has work held in private collections in Europe, the United States, and Canada, notably the Sobey Collection.

    Project Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition featuring artist Camille Jodoin-Eng.
    Jodoin-Eng’s work engages with the spatial and sensory properties of light by using mirrors to create illusions of space. In an experiment to visually unfold abstract concepts of expanding space, she translates compositions through orthographic drawings, paper and digital models into glowing sci-fi devices made from plastic, wood, metal and electrical components. She constructs optical instruments that embody a dualistic infinity, where the internal depths of the mind are projected into the vastness of infinite space. The interplay between physical and psychological space is emphasized by the illusion of impossible dimensions and perspective.

    From September 10-30th 2015, artist Tessar Lo will inhabit Project Gallery for his exhibition ‘no more doubts, no more fears,’. Transforming the gallery space into a temporary working studio and home, Lo works to achieve an immersive and free stream-of-thought mode of creating, in hopes of revealing an essence of ideation and revelation through both successful and failing attempts at making intention visible.

    Sharing his artistic process with complete transparency, Lo aims to integrate and display a new level of vulnerability, creative power, and genuine expression through this exhibition. Regularly creating works on paper and canvas, as well as affecting the space through installation as well as his presence and process, Lo demonstrates how the act of creating can be an ambition, expression, and even a step towards a more abstract ideal or feeling of betterment.

    Tessar Lo creates bold works driven by otherworldly, but perhaps also autobiographical narratives that explore themes of time, identity, mysticism, innocence, transformation, symbology and abstraction. Through raw and expressive forms, figures, and environments Tessar creates dream-like atmospheres where different contemporary, historic, and fictional cultures find convergence. Lo’s artist practice emphasizes process and the importance of discovery, regularly innovating his use of media and artwork format while maintaining potent recurring themes, symbols, and a clearly unique aesthetic.

    Lo studied illustration at Sheridan College, and has been exhibited in group exhibition in Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Miami, Barcelona, Tokyo, and Amsterdam.

  • No Amount of Logical Anaylsis: Rupert Nuttle: Aug 8-26

    ARTWORK 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.
