loop Gallery is pleased to announce Zoology, a new exhibition by David Holt. 

Holt’s Zoology paintings of living, extinct, and imaginary animals are part of an ongoing series of works inspired by natural history museum displays and illustrated atlases. Monkeys, fish, dogs, cats, birds, raccoons and even dinosaurs and mollusks are playfully depicted in painterly, grid-like arrangements that invite morphological comparisons.

A Toronto-based painter whose works are in private collections in the USA and Canada, Holt has been a recipient of a painting grant from the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation and an artist’s residency at the Ragdale Foundation. He taught for many years at Marymount College (later of Fordham University) in Tarrytown, New York, and since 2005 he has lived and worked in Toronto, teaching art at Upper Canada College.

loop Gallery is pleased to announce Pages from Life’s Journey, a new exhibition by Sung Ja Kim-Chisholm

The pieces that comprise Kim-Chisholm’s latest exhibition symbolically communicate the vital significance of the pages that make up the books of our lives. Our memories, experiences, hopes, joys and disappointments are each symbolized by a page or a coil in the unfolding of our individual life journeys.

The works are made with white fabric saturated with white plaster. The fabric symbolizes how our memories and experiences are tightly woven together within the events of each of our lives, while the central importance of the colour white, through its reflection of most of the wavelengths of visible light symbolizes how our memories, experiences, hopes, joys and disappointments are reflected in our lives.

Kim-Chisholm is a Toronto artist and art educator, who has been a longstanding member of Loop. She has participated in many group and solo exhibitions in both South Korea and Canada and has also been retained for many private commissions in both Asia and in North America. She graduated from Chu-Gye University for the Arts in Korea and the Ontario College of Art & Design University. Her work can be found in numerous private collections.
