  • Blanking Field: February 25 – March 13

     


    Opening Reception:
    Thursday February 25, 6-9pm

    Exhibition Dates: Thu, February 25 – Sun, March 13

    Lauren Pelc-McArthur’s art practice responds to the melding of visual culture with digital technology, challenging the boundaries of digital art and traditional painting. Her interdisciplinary approach begins with the conventional organizing principles of portraits and landscapes, yet these principles are present in vague forms and broken into fragments, one mark disrupts another and competes for space with a third. Bold colours are used to tantalize and repel – resembling neurons that fire like neon lights as viewers cycle through headlines, listicles, and infinite scrolls. Fluctuating between various styles of painting, Pelc-McArthur unsettles the boundaries of figuration and abstraction to articulate the feelings of ‘sensory overload’ that are derived from the endless consumption of digital information.

    Born in 1989, Lauren Pelc-McArthur is an emerging artist from Toronto. Graduating from the Ontario College of Art & Design (2012) with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Drawing and Painting, Pelc-McArthur responds to various facets of technology and internet culture through painting, sculpture and 3-D animation. Recipient of an emerging visual artist grant from the Toronto Arts Council in 2014, she has participated in International and Canadian residencies including the Roundtable Residency in Toronto.

    Opening Reception: February 4, 6-10pm

    Exhibition Dates: Thu, February 4 – Sun, February 21

    chordata is an exhibition of new drawings by Brett Despotovich which investigate resonance and interference, harmony and discord.
    Continuing with the direction of his previous exhibitions (the fall) (2014) and Black is the Ultimate, Black Eclipses Everything (2015), the work in chordata is informed by the intersecting points of his scientific and mythological interests.

    Born in Toronto, Ontario in 1982, Despotovich studied at OCADU (2001-05), followed by his involvement with the production of FLicKeR, a multi-award winning feature-length NFB/BRAVO! documentary directed by Nik Sheehan. His debut solo exhibition (the fall) was reviewed by Benjamin Bruneau for Magenta Magazine, and he has work held in private collections in Europe, the United States, and Canada, notably the Sobey Collection.

  • Athenaeum: Jan 15-31

    Opening Reception: Friday Jan 15th from 6-10pm
    Exhibition Dates: Jan 15-31, 2016

    Project Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition featuring artist Camille Jodoin-Eng.
    Jodoin-Eng’s work engages with the spatial and sensory properties of light by using mirrors to create illusions of space. In an experiment to visually unfold abstract concepts of expanding space, she translates compositions through orthographic drawings, paper and digital models into glowing sci-fi devices made from plastic, wood, metal and electrical components. She constructs optical instruments that embody a dualistic infinity, where the internal depths of the mind are projected into the vastness of infinite space. The interplay between physical and psychological space is emphasized by the illusion of impossible dimensions and perspective.

    ARTWORK PREVIEW

    This collaborative art exhibition will explore the contrast between abstract painting and Illustration, as shown in the works of Toronto emerging artists Andre Kan, Chris Perez, Heidi Berton, and Emily May Rose. Dirty Soap is an oxymoron, juxtaposing two contradictory elements much like we’re doing with artistic styles. The unkempt nature of a worked-in studio is transformed by the creation of clean lines and forms. The aesthetic is fresh, and the painting is dirty. In the best possible way, of course.

    The exhibition will feature individual works by the artists, as well as two murals, one being a collaboration between Andre and Chris, and the other between Heidi and Emily. These will explore their contrasting styles in a large format, emphasizing the differences seen in their juxtaposition.

    Project Gallery Studios is located at 184 Munro St. Unit #6. Enter the studio through the back entrance at the southeast corner of Blackburn St. and Mount Stephens St. The studio exhibition space is open by appointment only.
