DESCRIPTION

A new year marks a restart to a cycle. The first day of a new year carries with it the burden and the gift of a clean slate: Resolutions are made with sureness, earlier memories are archived as nostalgic bygones and there is a stillness, bloated with the potential of starting anew. The blanketing of snow over much of the Canadian landscape at this time amplifies impressions of stillness. The morning after a night of snowfall where sound is muted and covered objects take minimalized form, engages a new type of looking. The works featured in O'Born Contemporary's Second Annual Emergent Artists Exhibition parallel this sense of momentary suspension. The artists render the familiar with a delicate, still ambiguity and ask us to find the peculiar in the banal.
