ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Jason Deary - KATHARINE MULHERIN - NO FOUNDATION - April 17th - May 11th Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:54:49 +0000 Maude Arsenault, Richard Bernardin, Maxime Brouillet, Jérôme Nadeau, Daniel Shipp, Sara A. Tremblay, Victor Vargas Villafuerte - Neubacher Shor Contemporary - May 2nd - June 7th <p style="text-align: justify;"><em><strong>Carbon</strong></em> is a curatorial collaboration between <strong>Neubacher Shor Contemporary</strong> and <strong>The Print Atelier</strong>, a Montreal based virtual gallery specializing in contemporary photography. Applying their unique approach to the photographic arts, the artists selected endeavor to define '<em><strong>Identity</strong></em>' as it is perceived and captured within the special confines of the photographic image and the assumed intimacy between subject, both living and inanimate, and the beholder.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">About the artists</span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">After studying art and film, <strong>Maude Arsenault</strong> began her career as a fashion photographer, working for prestigious publications such as Vogue, Elle, Nylon and Flare. Following extended stays in Sydney and Paris, Maude is now based in her native Montreal.&nbsp; Her work is recognized for its poetic sensuality and inspired by women's strength and passion for life. In spring 2013 Maude will exhibit a series of portraits exploring the themes of texture in the aesthetics of beauty. Over the last 15 years she has been involved in many group and solo exhibitions in Canada.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Richard Bernardin</strong> was born in Chicago but now lives between Paris and Montreal. After studying film and photography, he embarked on a successful career in fashion photography, where he has worked for such magazines as Bullett, Elle, Citizen K, Grazia and Harper's Bazaar. His style is influenced by Modernist architecture and the cinema of Cassavetes, Kubrick and Hitchcock. Richard is currently at work on his first short film and has upcoming exhibitions in Paris and New York. About his work, Richard states that, 'We live in a world obsessed by beauty and perfection, by facades we have set up to hide who we really are, our weaknesses, our feelings, our fears. We all live a double life: our self which attempts simply to exist and our ego which hides and suppresses it through fear.'</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Maxime Brouillet</strong> was born in the countryside, but now lives in Montreal. He graduated from Concordia University's Fine Arts program, majoring in Film and Photography. This multidisciplinary education has instilled in Maxime a particular attention to an image's temporality. Maxime collaborates with dance company Tangente; creating video portraits of their artists. This association goes along his documentary work and explores corporeal existence.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>J&eacute;r&ocirc;me Nadeau</strong> is an artist, curator and editor living and working in Montreal. He recently completed a BFA with a Major in Photography art Concordia University. His work was featured in several group shows in galleries such as the Maison Louise Carrier, Push Gallery, FOFA Gallery, Les Territoires, the Soci&eacute;t&eacute; des Arts Technologiques, L'Espace Jean-Brillant and the Eastern Bloc.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Sara A.Tremblay</strong> holds several degrees in photography, and is currently completing her MFA at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. Using photography, drawing, performance, video, and sculpture, Tremblay documents her personal experience of being places and seeing things through the traces and artifacts she collects. She gives herself challenges, and plays with the notion of the infinite and the impossible using simple ideas. She either succeeds or fails. Her work has been featured in several group and solo exhibitions in galleries around Quebec, Ontario and in Gothenburg (Sweden), where she spent half a year on an academic exchange program during her masters. The few Nordic regions she has visited, deeply inspired her, and marked a turn in her work. There, she started to surround herself with circles and spheres, a form and metaphor that is a current focus in her work. Originally from Charlevoix, a small region in the northeast of Quebec City, surrounded by mountains and the Saint Lawrence River, she now lives in Montreal, and works in a studio with a nice view on Mount Royal.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Daniel Shipp</strong> currently lives in Sydney, Australia where he studied photography at the prestigious Sydney College of the Arts. He combines a career as a commercial photographer with his personal art projects, often large-scale portrait series. These have included studies of rising musicians (Future Classic), art college students (250 commissioned portraits), characters from the fashion world (Fashion Week Project) in addition to The Y Project, carried out in conjunction with the Cirque du Soleil/Oxfam. His work combines a passion for the narrative capabilities of light with an interest in the beauty to be found in the individual face. Daniel is more interested in exploring the 'imperfections' of the everyday face to the so-called 'perfection' of the professional model. He uses light to seek a certain kind of beauty.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Victor Vargas Villafuerte</strong> (b.1980 Mexico City) studied actuarial sciences at the UNAM, with specialty in finances. After working for 5 years in actuarial related jobs he decides to change to photography.In 2005 he starts to study photography for several years within the workshops taught by Lazaro Blanco in the Casa del Lago in Mexico City and takes in 2007, in the same place, the courses of Cinema in Video and Cinematographic Script with Juan Santiago Huerta. He moves to Montreal in 2008 where he studied Photography at the Dawson College. Currently he works as a fine art photographer and documentary filmmaker.</p> Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:48:50 +0000 Group Show - Angell Gallery - May 8th - June 7th <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>ANGELL GALLERY</strong>&nbsp;is pleased to present&nbsp;<strong><em>I </em></strong><strong><em>❤</em></strong><strong><em>&nbsp;</em></strong><strong><em>PAINT</em></strong>, a group exhibition featuring paintings curated by&nbsp;<strong>Kim Dorland</strong>.&nbsp;The show will be on display throughout the entire gallery from&nbsp;<strong>May 8 to June 7, 2014.</strong> An <strong>opening reception</strong> will be held on&nbsp;<strong>Thursday May&nbsp;8, 6:00 to 9:00 PM.&nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>A letter from the curator:</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>"Painting is over. Painting is making a comeback. Thick paint is dead. Figuration is the future. Abstraction forever. Who can keep up?</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>For this show I was not interested in the rules - there are too many and they change every day. Instead I wanted to bring together a group of people immersed in the medium of my obsession to create a dialogue about paint -&nbsp;across different styles, approaches and career levels - that showcases&nbsp;the medium's possibilities. No matter the battle cry of the moment, these painters show that painting is alive and well, current, compelling and relevant.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>From the visceral paint handling of </em><strong><em>Humberto Poblete-Bustamante</em></strong><em> and </em><strong><em>Eva R&auml;der</em></strong><em>&nbsp;to the calculated applications of </em><strong><em>Echo Eggebrecht</em></strong><em>&nbsp;and </em><strong><em>Gavin Lynch</em></strong><em>; from the historical vibes of </em><strong><em>Paul Housley</em></strong><em> and </em><strong><em>Felipe Talo</em></strong><em> to the pop sensibilities of&nbsp;</em><strong><em>Jason Stopa</em></strong><em> and </em><strong><em>Mark Puchala</em></strong><em>; from the representations of </em><strong><em>Bradley Wood</em></strong><em> and </em><strong><em>Esteban Cabeza de Baca</em></strong><em> to the abstractions of </em><strong><em>Bradley Harms</em></strong><em> and </em><strong><em>Russell Tyler</em></strong><em>; from the figures of </em><strong><em>Andre Ethier</em></strong><em>, </em><strong><em>Genieve Figgis</em></strong><em> and </em><strong><em>Kyle Scheurmann</em></strong><em> to the objects of </em><strong><em>Mathieu Lefevre</em></strong><em> and </em><strong><em>Jeanie Riddle</em></strong><em> - these painters all get to the "heart" of what painting is and can be.&nbsp;</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>I'm also very interested in the idea of influence. Painting can't exist without it. So I asked each participant to tell me about painters they are looking at and have tried to include some of those people as well (Gavin Lynch begets Echo Eggebrecht, Andre Ethier begets Mark Puchala, Humberto Poblete-Bustamante begets Felipe Talo, and so on). It has&nbsp;made for a democratic and organic curatorial process with unexpected links and dialogues between paintings, which - for a paint lover like myself - is what this medium is all about.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>My thanks to this talented group for participating - I'm excited to be presenting such a diverse and committed view of painting to Toronto. Thanks also to Angell Gallery for indulging my idea."</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="right"><strong>- Kim Dorland, Artist</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>List of the exhibiting artist:&nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Esteban Cabeza de Baca lives and works in New York.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Kim Dorland lives and works in Toronto.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Echo Eggebrecht lives and works in Brooklyn.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Andre Ethier lives and works in Toronto</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Genieve Figgis lives and works in Dublin, Ireland.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Bradley Harms lives and works in Vancouver.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Paul Housley lives and works in London, England.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Mathieu Lef&egrave;vre was taken from us too early in a tragic bike accident in 2011.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Gavin Lynch lives and works in Ottawa.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Humberto Poblete-Bustamante lives and works in London, England.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Mark Puchala lives and works in Toronto.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Eva R&auml;der&nbsp;lives and works in Berlin.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Jeanie Riddle lives and works in Montreal.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Kyle Scheurmann lives and works in Toronto.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Jason Stopa lives and works in Brooklyn.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Felipe Talo lives and works in Berlin.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Russell Tyler lives and works in Brooklyn.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Bradley Wood lives in Larchmont, New York.

This show will feature paintings of windswept coastlines, haunting lone houses in east coast landscapes, and wonderously detailed and evocative images of the majestic Elora Gorge.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">"McCarthy's work as a whole speaks of an artist immersed in the tactile sensations of the everyday world. His ability to give shape to these, however, points viewers beyond literal reality to a heightened sense of what lies beneath the surface of appearances...there is a magic in his achievement."<br /> -Robert Reid, "Painting of enduring merit", K.W. Record</p> Mon, 14 Apr 2014 14:32:23 +0000 Zanele Muholi - RYERSON IMAGE CENTRE - May 1st - June 1st <p style="text-align: justify;">Zanele Muholi&rsquo;s <em>Faces and Phases</em> aims to address the representation of black lesbian and queer identity, focusing largely on post-apartheid South Africa. This ongoing series of large-format black and white photographs includes more than 240 portraits, of which 36 are exhibited to coincide with the celebration of WorldPride 2014 in Toronto.<br /> <br /> As a visual activist for the rights of LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) people in South Africa and beyond, Muholi endeavours to radically change the conventional perception of lesbian and transgender communities, who suffer from an epidemic of continuous attacks: &ldquo;corrective&rdquo; and &ldquo;curative&rdquo; rapes, physical and psychological assaults, and hate crimes. Working from and for her own community, Muholi creates strong, beautiful and positive images of empowered individuals. As visual statements, her photographs dignify the members of an often hidden, voiceless and marginalized population. The verticality and scale of the prints accentuate the resilience of the figures, purposely confronting the viewers with their scrutinizing gaze. The powerful images support and promote self-expression and pride, shaping and claiming a black lesbian and transgender visibility.</p> Mon, 14 Apr 2014 14:26:26 +0000 Stan Douglas - RYERSON IMAGE CENTRE - May 1st - June 1st <p style="text-align: justify;">The work of Stan Douglas affirms the validity and volatility of photography at this decisive moment in the history of art and media. The continuous fluctuations in optical technology, the reduction of images to data and the everyday use of photographs in social media have resulted in challenging questions regarding how images are made, used and distributed.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The stories, sites and events that Douglas investigates are familiar and historically situated. His work explores the vestiges of culture and memory through the mediated experience of photography and film. Frequently, the images describe the overlooked histories of cultural identity, displacement and injustice, revealing an uncanny resemblance to present-day events. Utilizing recombinant narratives and pictorial strategies, Douglas pursues the effects of anachronism to inscribe past events onto contemporary contexts. The photographs, employing a labyrinth of invention and meaning, examine the technological apparatus from which they are constructed. This is achieved through his discerning attention to photography as both medium and subject.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Stan Douglas&rsquo;s documentary photographs affirm the authenticity of the locations they describe. The layered meanings these images acquire when presented in the context of fictionalized historical narratives reposition documentary photography in a paradoxical relationship with other media. The tension between fact and fiction, a basis for all documentary art, encourages the spectator to create and participate in the meaning of the work.<br />&nbsp;</p> Mon, 14 Apr 2014 14:22:21 +0000 Gordon Parks - Nicholas Metivier Gallery - April 24th - May 24th Mon, 14 Apr 2014 14:01:56 +0000 Keith W. Bentley, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann - Lonsdale Gallery - May 1st - June 1st <p style="text-align: justify;">Pairing the evocative ink-stained paintings of Mann with Bentley&rsquo;s mutated historical sculptures brings to mind Swiss psychiatrist Hermann Rorschach.&nbsp; Rorschach&rsquo;s famous ink blots&mdash;however highly abstracted and non-referential&mdash;are still catalysts for the human imagination today.&nbsp; Both artists in this duo exhibition achieve a level of abstraction comparable to his ink blots that inspires a creative response in their viewers, as the mind seeks to ascribe something recognizable and subjective within these morphing artworks.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">KEITH W. BENTLEY<br /> Bentley&rsquo;s distinctive sculptures are easily recognizable by their bright yet limited colour palettes, just-left-of-pop aesthetic, and unexpected use of found objects.&nbsp; Born in Vermont, Keith W. Bentley was raised in New Brunswick.&nbsp; His multi-disciplinary approach reinvents objects (both original and appropriated) by transforming their surface and mass with all-over applications of rubber, fibre and object multiples.&nbsp;&nbsp; Bentley&rsquo;s accumulations of objects that adorn his figurative substrates dramatically morph the ordinary into the exceptional.&nbsp; Bentley currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland.&nbsp; His works have been exhibited throughout North America and are currently making their way into public and private collections worldwide, most recently that of the Delaware Art Museum.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">KATHERINE TZU-LANN MANN<br /> Based in Washington, D.C., Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann&rsquo;s practice integrates adornment with organic, chaotic forms.&nbsp; Her compositions converge around loose stains of colour, products of chance; they cornerstone fine, lace-like or cellular patterns, simultaneously highlighting and suffocating the ink-stained foundations of the paintings.&nbsp; Mann&rsquo;s career is liberally peppered with awards, fellowships and residencies. Her work can be found in public collections in the USA, Austria, and the United Arab Emirates.</p> Tue, 15 Apr 2014 18:31:41 +0000 Joan Kaufman - Lonsdale Gallery - May 1st - June 1st <p style="text-align: justify;">In&nbsp;<em>Cloud Cover</em>, interdisciplinary Toronto-based artist Joan Kaufman creates ethereal images that blur illusion and the natural world. Working in her studio, Kaufman fabricates elaborate installations using layers of falling textiles and carefully modulated lighting. She then employs the primary tools of studio photography to simulate a fragmented world, revealing the mutual vulnerability of humans and nature.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Throughout&nbsp;<em>Cloud Cover</em>, Kaufman targets collective anxiety over the environmental impact of the twenty-first century.&nbsp; The metaphor of the cloud articulates the futility of humanity&rsquo;s attempts&mdash;so often at odds&mdash;to both protect and control the natural world.</p> <h3><strong><em>&nbsp;</em></strong></h3> Mon, 14 Apr 2014 13:53:33 +0000 Graham Peacock - Gallery Gevik - April 11th - April 30th <p style="text-align: justify;">It is with great pride that Gallery Gevik hosts its second solo exhibition for Graham Peacock.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Peacock developed an interest in the abstract art of Mondrian and Malevich, followed by Rothko and Noland, and found his own voice through this passion.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">His mixed media works follow his "process abstractionist" ideals, which he's able to explore further as a member of the group "New New Painters".&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Peacock pushes the boundaries of abstract art and creates&nbsp;sculpture-like paintings through his manipulation of mixed media. Can you guess some of the elements he uses? (Check out our website for answers.)&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Graham Peacock has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and we are pleased to once again delight Toronto audiences with his work. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:20:07 +0000 Michael Antkowiak - LE Gallery - April 17th - May 3rd Mon, 14 Apr 2014 13:41:22 +0000 Jérôme Nadeau - Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography - May 2nd - June 7th <p style="text-align: justify;">Exploring notions of disintegration, disappearance and decay, J&eacute;r&ocirc;me Nadeau&rsquo;s practice is concerned with externalizing typically unseen production processes. Interested in the poetic language of abstraction, Nadeau offers reflections on image, material and the inherent qualities of the photographic medium.&nbsp;<em>Ruins&nbsp;</em>features artworks made using a technique that extracts the ink and dyes from an image printed on chromogenic paper, which is then transferred directly onto a sheet of undeveloped Fujicolor Chrystal Archive Paper. In doing so,&nbsp;Nadeau&nbsp;creates images that exist in a visceral space where an object not only represents the past but also defies the indexical properties of the image in the present.</p> <h3>Artist Biography</h3> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>J&eacute;r&ocirc;me&nbsp;Nadeau&nbsp;</strong>is an artist, curator and editor based in Montreal. He is currently enrolled in the MFA program at Concordia University in Montreal. In 2013, he founded SOON, an independent publishing house focusing on producing visually and intellectually challenging high-end art books. His work was shown in solo and group exhibitions at Les&nbsp;Territoires,&nbsp;FOFA&nbsp;Gallery, Push Gallery and the&nbsp;Soci&eacute;t&eacute;des&nbsp;Arts&nbsp;Technologiques&nbsp;in Montreal, as well as in Quebec City and Island. He is the 2013 recipient of the Mildred and Margot&nbsp;Lande&nbsp;Graduate Scholarship in Photography.</p> Mon, 14 Apr 2014 13:36:38 +0000 Sheree Hovsepian - Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography - May 2nd - June 7th <p style="text-align: justify;">For this exhibition Hovsepian&nbsp;presents a series of new works that bring together photography, sculpture and installation, exploring movement, abstraction and various conceptions of the &lsquo;object.&rsquo; The photographic works branch from an ongoing series of photograms, photos made without a camera by placing objects directly on photographic paper, called <em>Haptic Wonders</em>.&nbsp; The term &ldquo;haptic&rdquo; refers to the sense of touch, pointing to Hovsepian&rsquo;s production of these pieces in the darkroom and her moving and manipulating various materials in time and space with her hands.&nbsp;Hovsepian sees these unique works as recording a performance of her body in a brief amount of time within a certain amount of space, further exploring the physicality of photography. The images will are paired with her&nbsp;series of multi-media, wall-based installations called <em>Material Gestures, </em>and<em>&nbsp;</em>free-standing sculptures made of bronze and wood that develop as a tangent to the photographic works by mimicking their shapes and forms.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Many of the works produced for this exhibition were created during a residency in Gallery 44&rsquo;s wet darkroom in March 2014.</p> <h3 style="text-align: justify;">Artist Statement&nbsp;</h3> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photography literally means &ldquo;drawing with light&rdquo; and thinking about photography is central to what I do.&nbsp;I am interested in photography and its ephemera as mark-making tools, specifically within the dialogue of abstraction.&nbsp;The materiality and limitations of the photographic process are what guides my practice.&nbsp;My work develops from a photographic impulse from which I expand and explore the ways photographic imagery can enter into formal, sculptural, and material relevance while maintaining a physicality that relates very naturally to the body &ndash; more specifically to the artist&rsquo;s hand.&nbsp;The question of what <em>IS</em> considered photography is continuously posed in my work, which often has no referent and cannot be reproduced.&nbsp;The &ldquo;decisive moment&rdquo; can be many moments in which their culmination forms the final work.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Confronting the limits of the photographic medium and exploring the nuanced language of abstraction, this panel brings together artists whose works mine the fluid categorizations of image, material and object.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Artist Biography</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Sheree Hovsepian&nbsp;</strong>(American b. Isfahan Iran 1974, lives NY) received her BFA/BA from the University of Toledo 1999, studied at The Glasgow School of Art, Scotland and received her MFA from SAIC&nbsp; 2002. She was included in "Harlem Postcards" at the Studio Museum and has had solo exhibitions at Bischoff-Weiss Gallery London 2013, Etemad Gallery Dubai 2012, moniquemeloche Chicago 2012, Charest-Weinberg Gallery Miami 2011, West Street Gallery NY 2010, and the Spertus Museum Chicago 2009.
