The working title for my new series is GRIDWORK. It revolves around the appropriation of public portraits of recognizable individuals.
A gift is many things. It is not always of a physical nature, and a physical offering is not always the real gift.
Their community is anything but barren, and the prints that southern patrons collect eagerly are proof that it is a colourful, humorous and provocative place….
On Thursday, October 11, 2018, Studio22 guests visited the gallery and participated in an intimate discussion with artist Stefan Duerst to hear about his background and inspiration for his latest works from his Kommunikation series.
On Thursday, September 27, 2018, over 30 guests visited to Studio22 and participated in an intimate discussion with artist J.T. Winik.
Shop Talk with Stefan will explore his craft and focus on the latest works from his Kommunikation series. The newest works in this series are interactive – further expanding on the idea of communication.
We like to play our music loud during Art After Dark. It’s loose. It’s fun. Visitors should expect to enjoy groovin’ to the tunes while taking in our contemporary Canadian art and artists.
“Art making is intuitive and interactive. Bits and pieces attract each other like magnets and, in the end, the marriage of these elements opens a world that is familiar.”
Thematically, Winik’s new paintings are composed of two main series; Girl(s) in a Corner and Female Circus Performers. The first series depicts young women in party dresses, sitting alone in corners, confronting the viewer face on. The simplicity of the theme allows the artist’s process to focus solely on interacting with mark-making until a figure forms, each with its own personality and attitude. Sometimes these girls appear a bit broken, other times they challenge the viewer, but mostly there’s a bit of both. It is that merging of conflicting senses that keeps the audience intrigued – with strength and vulnerability co-habiting as they so often do in real life.
Seasonal exhibit featuring new works by a grouping of our represented artists.
Every 3 months, a grouping of our regular artists exhibit a selection of brand new works throughout the gallery.
As the story of ‘Woodrow At Sea’ compels the contemplation of the meaning of friendship, generosity
and the importance of supporting those around us enduring hardships, perhaps one of the most special features of the exhibit is the love and compassion the artist exudes for animals, both real and fantastical, and his commitment to animal welfare and advocacy
Rarely do such varied subjects come together in a studied and cohesive body of work, and yet Stewart manages to lend his signature ability to consume and distill disparate cultural forms, from classic films and art history to folklore and pop culture, and to imbue them with something akin to reverence.
Introducing the Artist Portfolio Series. A chance for our customers to have easy access to the newest works of our artists both in the gallery and identified online. Browse, discover, purchase – online or in the gallery.
