Kyla Mallett: How to See and Read the Aura These works began as a tangent to Mallett’s Self-Help work. In collecting second-hand self-help materials, she encountered a book entitled How to See and Read the Aura which fell under the category of parapsychology and new-age healing. This text became a key element to her research in self-help, which Mallett expanded on in this body of work centred ar...   [more]

Recent paintings of historical artists such as Eva Hesse and Goya are set against spare and subtly toned backdrops through which remnants of former paintings can be seen. These simultaneous references to what came before illustrate a sense of lineage and appreciation common to my practice. The manner in which I have posed Hesse alludes to Vermeer’s Girl With a Pearl Earring, one such example of the mu...   [more]

"A recent conversation with a closeted dyke who is a PHD Student in architecture at Western University in London, Ontario, prompted my queerie (sic) about modernism and queer identities. Her comments about the truth of materials in late modernist architectural practice led me to believe that the notion was a partial fallacy. For example, the use of wood in modernist buildings looks like wood but, in...   [more]

"With this recent body of work, I have been experimenting more specifically with creating optical resonances within the paintings, by manipulating colour and tone. I’ve been interested in the idea of delaying the perception of painterly space, in which the eye takes a moment to adjust; these works push this further by creating something akin to a blind spot through optical intensity. When one views...   [more]

ESP is pleased to present Berlin based artist Emmy Skensved's solo show Vis-à-Vis. For this series of work, Skensved mines her own materials for the subject matter. The textured acrylic paint used to produce the work is photographed and digitally altered to make graphic designs, which are traced back onto the paint before finally being cut and collaged onto the support. The actual brush marks and th...   [more]

Collecting and ordering things is an ancient human characteristic.
