Give it Time

 

You know when you look at something for the first time and think you have it figured out and then look at it again and suddenly see all kinds of things you never dreamed? Yup, this exhibition is all that and more. Incredible paintings that seem simple at first glance, graphic sculptures made of film strips, some of the most complex compositions we’ve ever seen. Keep coming back to these works and they’ll keep giving you something new.   

 

 

About Screen Time

With the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, we’ve moved the annual Artist Project show to a nine-week series of online exhibitions, running April 1 - June 2, 2021. Every Thursday at noon, a new themed exhibition launches featuring seven artists with a daily artist feature on our social media channels. From painting and drawing, to sculpture, prints and photography, the shows will support an incredible breadth of work, all available for sale directly from the artists.  During this time when we’re spending so much time at home, consider supporting an independent artist and treating yourself to a fresh perspective with an original work of art.

Miles Ingrassia's work deals with questions of identity, gender, and coming of age. His most recent paintings focus more specifically on male touch and intimacy, particularly from a straight, cis-gendered perspective. Ingrassia's works reveals how the act of male touching is often mediated by ritualized behaviour.

Dominique Hamel's childhood in Québec's far north, where the harshness of the conditions required attention and respect, influenced her perception of nature. Today, Hamel's awareness is tuned into the ways forms and colours are created by changing natural conditions. 30 years as an architect shaped her way of looking, but painting has provided her a new way to see.
