Peter Hill: Planetary Meditations.
"The work of Peter Hill lends itself to immersive reflection – a pull between the micro and the macro, it allows the viewer to find a resting ground in chaos. To find a still moment on the surface of his tondo works is to find stillness in the nature of all things.
The circular surfaces, which seem to simultaneously hold undulating planes and subaqueous depths inherently, speak in their complex organic fluidity to the state of accretion, of ecosystems both in growth and in recession.
To look is to give the self a moment of awareness, to understand its response. His process is deeply meditative, reflective, and self-aware of the moment when a painting becomes finished. However, and perhaps more importantly, his work though personal in its creation is made for the viewer. It is giving us, just as a satellite might offer, a glimpse at an image of the world we are on, a new sense of perspective, of investigation, and throws us into our own celestial bodies." – Corrie Jackson, Assistant Curator RBC.
The exhibition continues for three weeks when the gallery is open, or by appointment. Call 416 522 9915 for info ... more

opening reception 2-5pm
John Ide Drawings. 2B.
Drawn with 2B pencil, thousands of cross hatched lines make patterns of dark and light that rise and fall – like breath. Ide erases and redraws as the drawing evolves.
In earlier drawings, there were faces, hands, figures, and gradually he covered them over... Now John is working just with areas of colour, but the effect is the same. The areas of light and dark in these drawings resemble clouds in their ability to receive projections, give rise to stories. They are the suggestions of images, but in the end are nothing more than mirrors of our own minds. – Maria Meindl.
A wide range of sources inspires the works: a flash of flame on a wood-fired bowl, frayed fabrics, leaves swirling... Suggestions of screens highlight dynamic forces at play with – perhaps in this age of facsimile – our notions of what's real, what's not ... more

opening reception 2-5pm
Sheryl Dudley: Field Notes. In her latest series titled, Field Notes, Sheryl Dudley explores a particularly strange moment in mid-century America. The soiled fragment of a magazine cover stuck to a bookstore shelf triggers a random sequence of flashbacks as far back as the artist's childhood, where hours of imaginative diversion played out in a neighbourhood gully. Her visually abstracted metaphors of this time period, distorted or incomplete, mirror the elusive nature of memory. (Giclee prints with mixed media) ... more

In Your Shoes. Maria Ezcurra's first solo exhibition in Toronto, In Your Shoes, explores multiple scenarios of social detachment and of invisibility. Constructed by social and cultural experiences of violence, ignorance and vulnerability Maria Ezcurra poses disembodied anomalous installations that engulf the gallery space as well as offers performances in public spaces that display disenfranchised communities all of which allure painful memories of perpetual inequality.
