Cell Gallery : élan" New Works by Janice Ykema
This artist focuses her practice on life and living things and finding
parallels between worlds. The selection of paintings presented will
focus primarily on her animal series. Janice is an artist that
challenges herself with composition and her paintings breathe with vim
and vigour. Her brush strokes are painterly. Her style expressionist in
flavour. You are almost guaranteed to leave this exhibition with a
smile. She is a member of the Ontario Society of Artists as well as the
Colour and Form Society.
Window Box Gallery SELFIE An installation by Lisa Anita Wegner up for
the month of July .
I have been fascinated by the fact that so many Smart Phone users
interact with the world through the lens of their phone, taking photos
and video. At shows, openings and concerts, people take pictures of
themselves with the action in the background. As an installation and
performance artist, I see 80% of my audience looking at my work through
July Installation SELFIE is an invitation to create a self portrait
while you take a picture. The round mirror angled toward the viewer
shows their face while jewel tone film gels create a halo around their
face. Mirror film with FLEX S lighting gel creates a surreal reflective
surface giving the viewer a playful saint-like self portrait created
from their own reflection.
The title SELFIE would be printed in reverse on the glass and the viewer
would see its negative reflection in the mirror; in a reversed phone
photo, it would appear the correct way.
This invitation will also get the Window Box into endless self portraits
posted on social media. #windowboxselfie
SELFIE is a collaboration of The Haus of Dada, my film and art
collective and LongBranch Design a sister company of thinkers and
solvers who we work with on a regular basis. While it was not my
intention to showcase our own work, the extremely short deadline to
create and produce my inaugural window made this the best option. I
approached two artists to collaborate with me; however, they are both
away, and while I was waiting for their response a simple piece was
born. All building materials found or donated.
