In the Mood, Blitz Art Gallery, Toronto, Canada, December 2019

Moods are a part of our daily life. The mood is found in the whole situation, in relationships and in people (Heidegger, 1996). Prior to any interaction, there is a mood, and moods are the backgrounds that make our emotions visible.  The mood is the atmosphere in a painting or the feeling expressed. Through this group exhibition, visitors will be able to observe how six Toronto-based artists illustrate or convey their thoughts and feelings in their creations. No matter what mood artists were in, their thoughts and emotions flowed into brush strokes and photographic images which resulted in different forms, shapes, and colors. Understanding abstract art is fairly easy – all you need is an open mind and a wandering imagination to read how artists looked beyond what we can physically see and translated intangible emotions onto the canvas. As a viewer, how does each work affect your mood and what mood do you feel the artist captured? This group exhibition featured the work of Hui An, Jacques Descoteaux, Laura Jane Petelko, Sarah Phelps, Paige Ring, and Mishel Schwartz.

A Piece of Me, Black Cat Showroom, Toronto, Canada, October 2019

A Piece of Me is a solo exhibition of Toronto-based artist Matt Pine. The show visualized how art has helped Matt overcome addiction, allowed him to push boundaries, and become an emotional outlet and a medium to express himself. His paintings depict the juxtaposition of beauty and resilience in the face of struggle, and color and texture found within his paintings represent another layer of emotion that went into creating each work. Each of Matt’s subjects has faced some form of trauma or life difficulty and overcome it. It is a modern-day reminder not to judge a book by its cover.

Anima: In Search for Self, Thisopenspace, Toronto, Canada, 2018

Anima: The Search for Self is a solo exhibition that featured artwork by Toronto-based artist Samfotosynthesis. Through his practice, the artist explores his relationship with the anima. “Anima” is a Jungian concept that describes man’s unconscious feminine side. This exhibition visualizes how Samfotosynthesis’s artistic practice and focus on self-expression allow him to let sensitivity, openness, compassion and other unconscious feminine psychological qualities be part of his masculine artistic identity.

Treasured Memories: Thinking with Things, Ontario College of Art & Design University, Toronto, Canada, 2018

Treasured possessions are always part of our everyday existence. As we grow older and our lives unfold, they become markers of our identity. Personal objects help us understand ourselves because they hold our memories, ideas, and aspirations. Treasured Memories: Thinking with Things reveals how personal and family possessions play a critical role in an artist’s self-representation, and how they shape an understanding of who they are. This group exhibition features the work of Jasmine Cardenas, Renee Hayward, Sara Angelucci, Sarah Malekzadeh, and Vanessa Hussey.
