Sheryl Dudley The Sea Was Never Blue

By | Exhibitions | No Comments

July 21 – August 12, 2018

Opening Reception: July 21, 2018

 

Loop Gallery is proud to present The Sea Was Never Blue, an exhibition of new work by Sheryl Dudley. In the artist’s own words:

“The series began as an attempt to record incidental moments — a ray of sunlight piercing a kitchen window, clouds casting shadows across tall buildings. Too ephemeral to capture, these moments nonetheless remain embedded in memory, taking on a filmic quality that suggests the quivering shadows of trees or figures walking along a sidewalk.

Such moments are the inspiration that drove The Sea Was Never Blue.

The  fluidity and weightlessness of ink in this series offer a way of apprehending images that draw on sensation, holding still for a moment that which is fleeting and fugitive all around us.”

Sheryl Dudley is a longstanding member of Loop Gallery who has exhibited extensively, both within Canada and internationally. Visit http://www.sheryldudley.com to learn more. 

The Sea Was Never Blue will be on display at Loop Gallery between July 21 and August 12, 2018. For media inquiries please contact Tim Welsh at 416-516-2581 or email tim@loopgallery.ca.

Kelly Cade BioIntervals

By | Exhibitions | No Comments

July 21 – August 12, 2018

Opening Reception: July 21,  2 – 5 PM

 

 BioIntervals is a continuation of Kelly Cade’s practice of abstracting photographic images to create new landscapes. These new works are intended to be points of entry into the quandary of measurement and meaning, and to underline the invented nature of such paracosms.

BioIntervals explores the intersection of our created intervals — our systems of measurement — and how they shape our experience of nature. It examines how our impulse to measure, categorize and define the natural world may in fact dissociate us further from that which we are trying to understand. 

In these works, linear patterns reveal inscriptions of meaning that overcode what lies beneath. Iridescent circles reflect our attraction to distraction, and our attraction to measurement as a system with its own internal logic.

These random geometric interventions of curved trajectories allow for a constantly shifting focus, suggesting a new dimension for inward and outward telescopings, as we continually search for meaning and place.

Kelly Cade is a visual artist working in a range of media, from painting and photography to installations. She is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design and has exhibited in both solo and group shows. Her work can be found in private and public collections throughout Canada, the U.S., Australia and the U.K.
