'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!
You are invited to my first solo show at The Red Head Gallery, where I became a member in 2018.
For more information about the content of the show, click here to see the exhibition page.
This show would be less than I’d hoped if not for the generous support of its/my sponsors.
Many thanks to all of the individuals, and one organization, who chose to support this project!
If you are curious about sponsoring new work, in any amount starting at just $10, please visit this page (click here) to find out more.
Instead of writing more in this second blog post about my installation at the In Situ 2018 festival, (to see part one click here), I will speak to you via the video below, shot and edited by my charming colleague photographer/videographer Nettie Seip, to whom I owe many thanks!
You'll see me on-site in the room during the early stages of installation as I talk about the work and my intentions for it. Then you get to tour through it at night with it fully installed while the festival was in progress.
Please take a look and let me know what you think!
Perhaps after the holidays I will put together some time-lapse video shot over the three nights I spent drawing the Hearts in Place mural in front of the festival audience. I will upload it to my YouTube channel – please click on the link and if you like it, consider subscribing :-)

May we all shine our light a little brighter and spread a little more love this year.
Thanks so much for your interest, enthusiasm and support, it means a lot.
Wishing you (and your family) all the best in 2017.
A little dose of food-related everyday beauty for the holiday: onion skins like fallen petals. "Another Kind of Skin" (since I do so much work with images of human skin). Enjoy!
Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate it.
This is otherwise not a season-specific post, but maybe the sunshine and weather today at home is reminding me of my beautiful day in Maastricht, The Netherlands, last month. A beautiful mediaeval town in the south of the country, where I spent a day walking around with my backpack and camera, visited an art program and bought some health food (as I always must to accommodate my allergies).
Here is a collaged panorama shot of the boat hotel where I stayed, on the river Maas (aka Meuse), as I embarked on my day's walking.
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.
