Jay White | Traveller

Saturday, January 7 - Saturday, February 18, 2017

Modern Fuel is pleased to present an exhibition of work by Jay White in our Main Gallery from January 7 to February 18, 2017. Unseen and furtive spaces like vacant lots, highway medians, intertidal zones and riparian areas are a place of learning in Jay White's practice. In Traveller, his intimate interactions with these interstitial areas are shared with a different public, and other humans become implicated in reciprocal and embodied relations with the animate entities that surround them.

Barbara Meneley | Unmapping the Last Best West

Saturday, January 7 - Saturday, February 18, 2017

Modern Fuel is pleased to present Unmapping the Last Best West, an exhibition by Barabara Meneley in our State of Flux from January 7 to February 18, 2017. A central fiction to every map is that the truth of a place—the undulating terrain, the growth of a tree—which must be translated to a static and two dimensional representation. Unmapping the Last Best West investigates the tensions in conventional cartographic representation and explore the potential for wider expression in representing place.

Carina Magazzeni and NO and NO | Common Names

Opening Reception: Sunday, December 11, 2016 at 12:00PM

Neighbourhood Gallery

79 Hiawatha Road, Toronto, ON M4L 2X7

A portrait can be an accurate rendering of someone but that image can be soulless. While a more artistic view can reveal more about the inner workings of the subject but may not be accurate. There is a balance. This show was all about trying to capture the inner workings, not just an accurate rendering of their subjects’ outer packaging.

These are more than just portraits, these are invitations to view the Human Condition Revealed.

Pattern Recognition 

Saturday, January 7 - Sunday, January 22, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 7, 2017 at 2:00PM

Loop Gallery

1273 Dundas Street West, Toronto ON M6J 1X8

Pattern recognition has two experimental installations - one visual, the other audio visual. Both build complexity with simple components. 

The visual installation explores the edge of excess, packing intense colour one layer on another creating the retinal overstimulation we need in winter. 

Each audio sculpture has a limited but interesting sound capacity. They can be bowed, plucked, tested with contact mics and played by puppets. They await curious and musical viewers to improvise something new for the world.


Suzanne Nacha

Interior Deometry 

Saturday, January 7 - Sunday, January 22, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 7, 2017 at 2:00PM

Loop Gallery

1273 Dundas Street West, Toronto ON M6J 1X8

Interior Geometry is an exhibition of paintings, screen prints and animations by Toronto artist Suzanne Nacha. Drawing on her background in geology, interests in industrial landscape and geometric patterning, she brings together a diverse collection of works that function as carefully crafted vignettes. 

Inspired by industrial landscapes, Nacha’s animation works present seamlessly looped, staged scenarios. Viewed in ceramic boxes, these animated vignettes appear as windows onto other worlds. Their moving geometries play with the viewer’s perception.

Yael Brotman 

Fabrications

Saturday, February 4 - Sunday, April 16, 2017

Reception: Friday, February 3 at 7:00pm

Kelowna Art Gallery

1315 Water Street, Kelowna, BC  

This exhibition features the work of four women artists who are from different regions of Canada, but all of whom work in installation. The title of the show, Fabrications, refers to the very physical making of things, as each of the artists is involved in incredibly labour-intensive processes to realize the completion of her pieces. Yael Brotman, from Toronto, and Libby Hague, also from Toronto, both have a background in printmaking, but moved into installation several years ago. Hague still works with paper, and Brotman is using plastics for the work commissioned for this exhibition. From Calgary, Laura Vickerson will be installing an enormous suspended fabric environment. And Montreal’s Gisele Amantea will be working with a text piece that involves her signature medium of flocking.

Viewers will feel immersed in the large scale of these installations, each reflecting a completely different sensibility. All four artists address the notion of beauty at some level, and visitors may find themselves mulling over this concept as well.

A major publication is planned with a text by Kelowna Art Gallery Curator, Liz Wylie, and another text by guest essayist, independent curator and writer Diana Sherlock, from Calgary.

"Tell Me What You Really Think": Selected Paintings 1975–2016

Reception: Thursday, January 5, 2017 at 5:30PM

Ottawa School of Art Gallery, Byward Market Campus

35 Geoge Street, Ottawa, ON K1N 8W5

“When you have months to think about things, strange things can happen. You might even learn something about yourself. I did.”
This exhibition is a compressed personal survey of the first 40 years of my life as an exhibiting artist. Think of it as my take on the Stones' wonderful "Through the Past Darkly" compilation album of 1969.
The only new work; "Chair: Piece in Art Time: 1954–2016," is an autobiography in the form of a site specific multi-media installation

The artist uses controlled movement of the camera, creating imagery which the camera can “see” but the eye cannot. These images are digitally interpreted, celebrating light, space and time while exploring the personality of the city.

CUTMR (Come Up To My Room) at the Gladstone Hotel

1214 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON M6J 1J6

A massive shipping crate beached upon a field of sand, fills the darkened room.
Light glows from inside the crate, invitingly.
Both container and transporter, Marian Wihak’s "Élan Vital" engages a range of perceptual and phenomenological sensations, while offering oblique connections between variant histories of transplantation across the physical and cosmological worlds.
"Élan Vital" evokes the link between the beating heart of our planet and the origins of the galaxy itself.

Vernissage: Sunday, April 9, 2017 at 2:00PM

Galerie d'art Jean-Claude Bergeron

150 rue St Patrick, Ottawa, ON K1N 5J8

My artistic pursuits have been characterized by abstraction and experimentation. I work in oil, multi-media and etching with materials as traditional as canvas but also paper, wood and metal. Observers of my work will appreciate elements of uniformity between works, an ever present invocation to detail and ultimately sweeping colour and contrast.
