- hahahahuh, – Tessar Lo: Aug 31 – Sept 23
Opening Reception: Thursday Aug 31st 6-9pm (RSVP)
Exhibition Dates: Aug 31 – Sept 23, 2017
hahahahuh, is a series of paintings inhabiting the literal and figurative space where the humourous and mysterious overlap-
these works were made as a reflection and meditation of these times; a little awkward, a bit laughable, and very often bewildering.
Tessar Lo reaches for that mysterious place that exists within the liminal, his vision and approach is constantly evolving.
Born in Indonesia and raised in Toronto, Lo blends themes endemic to his Asian heritage with Western pursuits or direct expression and materiality. Working with a variety of media, he uses acute marking, colour and texture to draw the viewing inward and create an awareness of surface and story.
By stripping his work of artifice and relying on instinct, he aspires to turn seemingly mundane subjects – a corner of the backyard, a bunch of fruits, a childhood toy – into sources of humour, sensation and potential. Around familiar motifs, he constructs unfolding mythologies that site the reservoirs of foolish wonder, and constants that lie buried within being.
Since Graduating from Ontario’s Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advance Learning with a BAA in Illustration, Tessar Lo has exhibited in galleries worldwide, from Toronto solo and group exhibition in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Miami, Barcelona, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Amsterdam.Opening Reception: Thursday Aug 31st 6-9pm (RSVP) Exhibition Dates: Aug 31 – Sept 23, 2017 hahahahuh, is a series of paintings inhabiting the literal and figurative space where the humourous and mysterious ...
- Atmosphere and Ambience: Kevin Columbus, Aug 12 – 26 Opening Reception: Saturday Aug 12th 2-5pm (RSVP)Exhibition Dates: Aug 12 – 26, 2017Columbus’s paintings emphasize the quality and uniqueness of light in landscape. The interest in unique light effects create scenes that convey more than just the subject matter but more importantly they convey a sentiment. By creating ambience and atmosphere through the emphasis of fog, haze, sunrise, sunset, dawn, dusk and twilight the paintings revive memories, and feelings of nostalgia. The work reinforces the metaphor that one’s memories fade and become hazy just like sunlight. The landscapes also serve as a moment to another time and place from one’s past.
Kevin Columbus is an artist based in Toronto, Ontario. He studied at The Ontario College of Art and Design and graduated in 2012. Even though Kevin lives in Toronto, he has spent many summers painting in central and northern Ontario. He has enjoyed extended time studying Renaissance and Italian Art in Florence, Italy, and has spent the past several years refining his understanding of perceptive drawing and painting. While in Italy, he also assisted and studied under the Italian painter, Massimo Giannoni. Kevin continues to embrace the influences of Italian art, while maintaining his natural inclination towards the northern Ontario landscape.
His recent work has built upon his growing understanding of form, colour and the medium of oil paint. He combines what he’s learned in traditional oil painting with his close inspection of master works; he does this alongside his continuous exercises in the plein-air technique to create contemporary imagery. He appropriates some recognizable elements from these pre-modern masterpieces and combines them with his personal memories, subconscious impulses and varied subject matter.

- Where No One Will Find Us – Alli Boddy Solo Exhibition
Exhibition: Fri, February 3 – Sun, February 26
Reception: Fri, February 3 6-10pm
Alli Boddy’s solo exhibition ‘Where No One Will Find Us’ explores the intersection of figure and landscape. Inspired by her personal connection to nature, her figure/landscape narratives represent the lived experience. Her subjects, which include herself and those close to her, all appear to exude a freedom of spirit. Alli is a strong believer in nature’s ability to transcend and portrays her subjects not gazing at the viewer, but focused in their own moment, venturing off into forests or teetering on cliff’s edge.
