Toronto City Hall No 6  
10/7/16 Posted 10/7/16

In 1957 an international competition was held for a design of a new city hall. A total of 520 designs were received from 42 different countries. The winner of the competition was Finnish architect Viljo Revell. In 1965 Toronto's fourth city hall opened and still serves as the home of the city's council. The 27 storey east tower and the 20 storey west tower surround the saucer shaped council chamber. The saddest part of the history of our current city hall is that Revell died of a heart attack at 5... [more]

The innate beauty of forms and colors  
1/31/14 Posted 1/31/14

I want to reveal the innate beauty of forms and colors, which do not presuppose culture or intellection on the part of the beholder, and which act quite simply upon the inner self, on man as a being of feelings. Ever since the world came into being, since man has been thinking or creating, everything was already in existence. Great constants remain unchanged. One should conceive of a way of reducing existence to relatively few things : oxygen, water, sunshine, geometry. One could say that the circl... [more]

A Hard Edge Barely Contains Them   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 1/25/14

It may be hard to find, but Dave Hickey did a little catalogue for Karl Benjamin in 2007 (published by Louis Stern Gallery) that contained a sort of palate cleansing line that bears repeating. Actually it bears writing out in pen or maybe even reserving a little space on your pegboard: “One need only consider Abstract Expressionism, for just a moment, as just another style to see with a great deal of clarity that, in the Post World War II period, geometric abstraction, or op art, or hard edge pain...

Making A Mark: Moving Painting Forward  
1/12/14 Posted 1/12/14

Author Deb Lawrence Studio Shot, Deb Lawrence, “You don’t know how paralyzing that is, that stare of a blank canvas…but the blank canvas is afraid of the real, passionate painter who dares and who has broken the spell of `you can’t’ once and for all.” -Vincent van Gogh, 1884 Not sure what the disease is called, but I definitely have the bug. Like the kid who’s more interested in pebbles on the ground than animals at the zoo, I view life through... [more]
