Faith Patrick, born 1992, is a Canadian painter, sculptor, and writer. Her practice is invested in her identity as a young female artist and its parallels to questions of certainty, originality, and resolution in painting. Her large and small scale paintings are sites of negotiation between the figurative and abstract, the cautious and impulsive, the original and remixed, and the finished and unfinished.
Opening Reception: Thurs Feb 5th, 7-11pm

“Paintings inspired by the textures and movements by the Seaside.”
Kristyn paints for love and passion. She finds inspiration everywhere and I loves delving into the creative process. Her favourite process is laying down a few lines and letting the painting emerge from the original strokes. While working on her BFA at York University she took on the more applied side of Art by starting a Studio-Gallery in the quaint tourist town of Bayfield, Ontario. Because of the touristic nature of the location, her work resides in collections all over Canada, the USA, Australia, and many countries in Europe. Currently, she is based in Toronto, yet traveling as much as possible to fuel her inspiration.

“Much of painting is about learning this visual language -this means of expression: analyzing, interpreting, simplifying. It’s more than mastering the tools and the technique – reading shapes, values, colours, edges. Above all else, it is a state of mind that is achieved when you finally stop ‘looking’ and learn to truly see the beauty that is all around us.” – Jamie McGill
Jamie McGill is primarily a landscape painter, working both in watercolour and oils. Largely self-taught he has attended classes at Humber College, Haliburton School of Fine Arts, Neilson Park Creative Centre, Blue Mountain School of Landscape Painting and Atelier St.Luc in Provence. He has studied under some of North Americas leading painters. The majority of Jamie’s paintings begin as plein air sketches which provide the basis for larger works completed in his West Toronto studio.

- 6: STREET – SoTeeOh Solo: May 1-13
Opening Reception: Friday May 1st, 7-11pm
Exhibition Dates: May 1 – 13, 2015
This contemporary exhibition explores a current digital street photography movement from a uniquely Toronto perspective. A blend of design, architecture, urban grit, cityscapes, and street fashion – SoTeeOh employs an urban guerrilla approach to photography to create staged compositions in dynamic environments. Significant post digital processing is also a component of this style and aesthetic, producing images that are rooted in the urban scape but also feel slightly surreal.
Toronto born, SoTeeOh’s earliest memories are of the commotion and chaos of Toronto’s urban center in the mid 1980′s. It is a fascination that has influenced his entire body of creative work. Drawing on any and all facets of urban existence in a multicultural mecca, SoTeeOh’s photography can be characterized by a hyper-keen attention to details from graffiti tags in back alleys to the arichetecture of the financial district. SoTeeOh uses these elements to carefully weave his own narrative of life in Toronto. Although primarily a photographer, he often works with video and paint to actualize his concepts.
As a photographer his work has been selected by Instagram as a featured photographer. He has also been featured by local websites such as BlogTO and Modern Toronto. He has done commissioned work for events such as Scotia Bank Nuit Blanche and MANIFESTO and his photography has been featured in music videos for artists such as ELMNT and Iman Omari. He posts daily snapshots from across the city on both his own site and as the photographer for 1LOVETO’s instagram account displaying an eye for details often overlooked.
