We are excited to present one of Greg Curnoe‘s iconic views of his studio windows originally exhibited at the 1976 Venice Biennale, the year Curnoe represented Canada. This painting is highlighted in Art Toronto’s Canadian Masterworks tour. We will also be showing early 1960s paintings, drawings and watercolours that reflect on Curnoe’s interest in Dada, Pop Art and his daily life.
Aganetha Dyck and Gathie Falk both take ordinary every-day objects and transform them into incredible works of art. We are showing 2 pairs of vintage bee-altered shoes by Aganetha Dyck . These shoes, created with the bees in 2000, are a continuation of Dyck’s “Extended Wedding Party Series” which featured altered clothing, purses, shoes and her monumental glass Wedding Dress (NGC).
Gathie Falk has spent more than five decades creating artworks that aim to “venerate the ordinary”. We will be showing rare papier-mache sculptures along with new paintings of her garden that celebrate the everyday, simple pleasures and the beauty found in her surrounding world.
Jonathan Forrest‘s new luminous, abstract paintings push the boundaries of colour, surface, texture and light.
From his summer visit to Saskatoon, Michael Gibson has chosen two rarely-exhibited paintings from 1983 by Canadian landscape master Dorothy Knowles.
Ron Martin‘s rare “World Painting #10” painted in 1970 is a kaleidoscope of pattern, colour and rhythm. One of Ron Martin’s first series of paintings were his “World Paintings” painted all a standard size divided into a grid of 1-inch squares containing three strokes of colour. The World Paintings were exhibited in 1971 at the Carmen Lamanna Gallery and at the Art Gallery of Ontario in 1976.
London-born-Brooklyn-based Jason McLean continues to make vibrant annotated drawings that reflect on his life, age, family and surrounding environments. The new highly-detailed colourful drawings are samplings of his daily observations, personal experiences and rich sense of humour. They reflect on his life living in the US, his obsession with local histories and his age.
After Hans Wendt‘s sold-out exhibition last year, we are excited to show three new large-scale conceptual watercolour paintings of cut, torn and ripped intricately composed paint samples.
Introducing the captivating photographs of emerging Toronto artist Sage Szkabarnicki-Stuart. Her non-photoshoped and self-referential photos tell stories about how humans interact with their home environment.
We look forward to seeing you at the fair!
