loop Gallery is pleased to announce Crossing Lines, a new exhibition by Thelma Rosner

Concern about national and religious conflict has been the subject of much of Rosner’s recent artistic practice. The Cross Stitch paintings in this exhibit consider issues of tribalism and conflict that seem to be epidemic in our world. The paintings contain direct references to both Afghan war rugs and Palestinian cross stitch embroidery. In their labour intensive and repetitive process, they also bring to mind the desire of war’s innocent victims for a return to ordinary domestic routine.

Thelma Rosner studied painting at the University of Western Ontario with Paterson Ewen.

Her recent work is presented in installations involving painting, digital printmaking and sculpture. Its subject matter often refers to social and political issues.Her work has been exhibited in Canada, the USA and England. She has received grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council.

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.
