When I Close My Eyes

 

Screen Time kicks off with a series of a dreamy works. In finely rendered paintings, evocative collages and vibrant sculpture, these works are grounded in the real world, but not tethered to it. This is definitely a collection for the extravert or those looking to be inspired by something a little ‘larger than life’, because at the end of the day (or the pandemic) we can all learn something from a bold move. 

 

 

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.

Nicole Moss is an award-winning, Toronto-based collage artist. Moss uses images from vintage magazines and books as her source material. The arrangement of these images is a chance-based process, which can produce meaningful and mystical insight. Her works' surreal narratives encourage the viewer to question their own thoughts and experiences, while getting lost in a dream-like world.

Toronto-based artist Richard Ahnert laces his anthropomorphic paintings with a quiet kinship between human and animal. He uses the relationship between species to explore themes of emotion, metaphor, and narrative with a satirical twist. Storytelling, understated humour, and deep reflection are at the heart of Ahnert's practice.

Why are humans and other species obsessed with beauty? What does beauty mean on an atomic level? These are the questions that keep interdisciplinary artist Dori Vanderheyden up at night. Vanderheyden's work is a reflection of her research around sexuality, and relationships between organic and inorganic bodies.
