The impact of the much-larger-than-life heads and hands in the two Pressed/Pressing diptychs can only be experienced in person. The intimate size of the Dream Home triptych contrasts sharply and makes a nice transition to the warm intimacy of Tonia Di Risio's furniture-housed videos.
These are the final days to see the 'Workspace' exhibition at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga.
Artists Jenna Faye Powell, Tonia Di Risio and I examine the physical and psychological spaces of work, roles and expectations, whether at the office or in the home.
My photos here are focused mainly on my work but the mix makes the show interesting.
Jenna Faye Powell takes a fun, even witty, look at office space and corporate environments. I particularly love her free-standing sculptures of large plants typically found in offices.
Tonia Di Risio's video work focuses on traditional food preparation in the kitchen (featuring various female relatives in Italy making traditional family dishes) and is placed in or on familiar-feeling home furnishings. She also has a large multi-channel projection that is really enjoyable to sit and watch.
Megan Press did a great job of curating the show, so I hope that if you haven't seen it yet you'll be able to by Sunday. If you do, please don't forget to sign the book, and share your thoughts here in the comments.
