Rally : 12 Ossington, Toronto

OPENING, JUNE 2 | 8–10 PM. Exhibition continues through June 2-8, 2016 / INFO - facebook.com/events

About the Work: The act of walking through New York with a camera is an act of reflecting. MY/NY DELUXE PICTURE BOOK is a photo collage scrapbook of New York City. The artist reflects upon her family’s relationship with the city, using her father’s photographs as a counterpoint to her own. New York looms large in the collective imagination, resulting in a myriad of versions. Power’s walks through the city are both aspirational and aesthetic, bound by the inescapable extremes that it presents. MY/NY DELUXE PICTURE BOOK is the artist’s interpretation of the city.

Dirt Nap

Project Gallery Studios : 184 Munro St - back entrance, Toronto

Project Gallery Studios : 184 Munro St - back entrance, Toronto

Opening 3rd of June / info  - facebook.com/events

Dirtnap is a playfully dark nod to this death and rebirth of information as it is remembered. The show presents the viewer with haunted images of peoples’ pasts and images of those who once stood in front of a camera, many of which have died. The images range from the painterly sublime to the casual snapshot. Chad Gauthier and Greg McCarthy both find reference in photographic imagery to produce images based on memory and the role of the artists’ hand in creating these newer images.
