Fresco painting by Wendy Feldberg

 

Fresco

Ancient frescos, despite broken-up colouration and degraded surfaces, retain a beauty that suggests a metaphor for strength made visible in fragility. Making marks on paper and cloth with plant pigments and rust, artist Wendy Feldberg explores a fresco’s enduring spirit and form.

The mixed media constructions of Marc Gagné range from funky shaped abstractions that play with the shape of “word balloons” from comics, to large and heavily worked pieces incorporating doors, found objects and assemblage that are inspired by urban surfaces and decay.

Kaleidos

This exhibition takes the viewer beyond the original photographic image to delve into the intricate details, patterns and textures of natural and architectural subjects. The composite images reflect, multiply and overlay one another resulting in photographic "textiles" that are a highly interpretative re-imagining of the original image.

My “Gardens of Earthly Delights”

My work happily introduces colourful images of the unbelievable richness and beauty of natural objects common to our environment. I invite my audience to take a journey around and inside the fantastic and realistic landscapes I create, to become acquainted with the many fairylike, mythological creatures that dwell in my painted worlds.

Poétique

Ink on paper, thoughtful presence, in contrast with the sense of absence in a virtual society, where letters disappear in a click. Old words, out of context, take on new shape and form inspired by the lyrics of Leonard Cohen and layers upon layers of beeswax. Suddenly, the creation shifts from music to living matter, from impermanence to permanence.

Sanjay Sundram - August 23 to September 18, 2018

River’s Edge

Sometimes ordinary moments by the river’s edge can become extraordinary when having a closer look. Photographs of these serene moments, combined with encaustics (an ancient technique using molten wax), bring a new dimension and ethereal quality to the images.
