My friend and budding art writer, Cynthia Mykytyshyn, chose my show, Two Februarys for her first blog post! You can read it here: https://lookwriterepeat.wordpress.com/


Two Februarys

April 9 - 30

Opening: Saturday April 9, 2:00 - 5:00 pm

Yumart Gallery (401 Richmond Street West)



In my upcoming solo show, I continue to explore the delicate subtleties of line, form, and colour in minimalist abstract works on canvas and paper. Layers of hard-edge geometric shapes in carefully composed acrylic paintings play with movement, space, and surface tension. Oil pastels are used as the primary medium for works on paper that engage with similar concerns of composition in carefully ordered pictures that celebrate the constant comfort of rows.



 

I'll help you celebrate the holiday season in style hand-folding your own paper tree ornaments in her intimate studio at 401 Richmond St. W. Using origami techniques that anyone can tackle, you'll make colourful and shiny paper cubes that add a touch of modern design to your tree-trimming game, simple garlands, and whimsical mini evergreens that are just plain adorable.

 

The workshop is $30 per person including materials. You'll leave with a good start on your handmade ornament collection and the skills to keep folding at home.
