Cell Gallery : Sonia Langer: Faceless Beauty
Born in Africa , raised in Europe , Sonia moved to Canada in her late twenties and graduated in graphic design in 1989 at George Brown College in Toronto.
Then, raising a family, she attended art classes at Avenue road Art School, Klim School of Art, Artistic Way and Koffler Center – mostly under the tutoring of Sadko Hadzihasanovic – while freelancing portrait commissions.
She has exhibited her work in each of these schools over the years, and participated in shows like Sight-on-Sight with Artify in Toronto and Stratford, North York group of artist tours, at the Mackendrick Gallery Wychwood Barns and the Carrier Art Gallery.
The magic that can be found in the most casual, unpretentious moments is often ignored. This is an homage to the uncelebrated snowy, foggy and rainy days and their faceless figures. Unblinded by the sun, allowing one to take comfort in seeing the light through the darkness.
Process Gallery: Fiona Legg: Careless Remnants
Fiona Legg was born in England, and moved to Canada at an early age. She has lived in much of the country, giving her a unique perspective of Canada. She focuses full time on mixed media sculpture. An emerging artist, in the past three years she has participated in a wide variety of exhibitions around Ontario and beyond, including the Canadian History Hall, Elora Sculpture Project, the Canadian Sculpture Competition, and the 12 Trees exhibit at the Gardiner Museum for Ceramics. She is the recent recipient of a Canada Council for the Arts Grant.
My focus is primarily on objects, the stories that they can tell, and the emotions or memories that they can elicit. ‘Take only photos, and leave only footprints’ is a commonly known phrase related to healthy stewardship of the planet. ‘Careless Remnants’ refers to the negative effects of human activity, when this phrase is ignored. Often (but not always) these effects are unintentional. They are usually ugly, cause the earth harm, and are the regretful consequences of human action.
