PAST EXHIBITIONS

Attila Ataner: “Artificial” Spaces

August 1 – August 31,2023

Attila Ataner photography translates some of his academic work on environmental philosophy into visual-photographic form, in effort to express his core ideas through art rather than scholarship alone. This form of urban-architectural photography is the artist’s attempt to build a personal visual record of the so-called “Anthropocene”. He urges the viewer to reflect on the contemporary experience of living in extensively built-up, “artificial” spaces.

Marco Sassone: Urban Scapes

November 14 – December 20, 2019

Marco Sassone’s eighteen new paintings are characterized, as in earlier work, by powerfully converging lines that entice the viewer’s eye into their highly textured surfaces. They revisit the artist’s familiar turbulent compositions that frame a distant skyscraper in New York or the vista of a street perspective in downtown Toronto. Also included in the exhibition are intimate paintings that evoke the soul of Venice—a city that Sassone has long celebrated as his spiritual home. His images distill the essence of that vital inner life in the reflective waters of its canals, where the city itself appears to drift in ever shifting surfaces, and where the facades of great houses and palazzi are blended and consumed.

September 20 – October 4, 2018

Retrospective exhibition by the Canadian contemporary artist Alexander Ahilov.
The show includes 18 oil paintings on canvas that tells a story in tones and forms by transforming emotions and feelings into visual abstract.

Ahilov’s abstracts are dense, rich and beautiful – color and forms fitting raggedly together like eccentric rocky fields. Invoking the light and open atmosphere of Toronto in particular, they seem to be all about how the eye gets into the terrain, how it sees its way around spaces, forms and tones.
