'Heartspace Hotel' is my surprise solo show for 2020 (I haven't told anyone about it until the last week couple of weeks, because I didn't know about it myself, lol!).
Occupying the third floor of The Gladstone Hotel in downtown Toronto, an amazing boutique art hotel renowned for its high profile art & design events and exhibitions, this multimedia show features a new combination of my heart-based work seen at my 'Heartspace' and 'A Full Heart' solo exhibitions in 2019, some of which have only ever been shown once, and even a couple of pieces I've never shown before.
Artworks include my longest digital print ever at over eight feet long, shown only once before in March 2019 at Cedar Ridge Creative Centre's Studio Gallery.
Also: many more prints, three of my large scrolls with giant image transfers, fibre-based work, paintings, abstract photography, and two more digital prints I've only exhibited once before.
The opening reception coincides with the one for the second floor exhibition so it's sure to be a happening evening – hope you can make it!
I love a clean slate.
A fresh sheet of paper, a newly-cleaned whiteboard, a pristine layer of snow.
There’s such beauty to the purity. The blankness quiets the noise of our surroundings, and of our own minds. Into those unsullied white spaces I find my mind naturally expands, while new ideas and possibilities start to grow and take shape.
So it is with a new year... and I am only just wrapping my mind around the possibilities of a new decade!
Do you do anything to mark the start of a new year? Do you brainstorm or reflect, set intentions or make plans?
I am working on a multi-part blog post “Looking Back to Look Ahead” in which I will share with you some of my reflections and insights into the year that’s passed and how those will affect how I see the coming year, and how I'll move forward.
Please take a moment to share your favourite ways of reflecting or refining your vision or just how you treat the annual changeover, I'd love to hear from you!
As a visual artist I like nothing more than getting up to my elbows in paint or little plastic toys, or wading in at the deep end in pursuit of an idea. When I am not teaching others in a similar vein, you can find me researching, writing and noodling around in my studio, seeing where my latest lines of inquiry lead me.
