My first – group – show in Hamilton! YMG Invitational 2015 is a show in which artists have invited other artists.
I am there thanks to Sarah Collard, a prolific painter and accomplished muralist. We met during the 2011 Mentorship project at the Burlington Art Centre (now Art Gallery of Burlington).
I am showing a brand-new piece, pictured here, made of acrylic skin image transfers of my own photography and digital photo-based work. Acrylic skins have a unique ability to capture qualities of human skin.
The show is on January 9 through February 9, 2015 at the You Me Gallery, 330 James Street North in Hamilton, Ontario.
Opening reception this Friday night (January 9) starting at 7pm. Hope to see you there!
UPDATE: Lots came out on a cold night!
It was cold, but gallery owner Bryce Kanbara had hot chocolate and coffee on hand to warm people up. Here are a couple of photos from the evening. We were too busy talking during the busiest period, so these were shot later in the evening.
I'm having a rest here (foreground) toward the end of the evening. There is a variety of work in the show, including: printmaking, drawing installation; bronze relief sculpture; photography; a collage of actual seeds (many hundreds of them!); mixed media sculpture/assemblage; artist book; a beautiful shadow box with layers of printed and intricately cut acetate and mylar... and of course my little photo-based acrylic skins.
