Cassie Paine: Pedestrian Values

March 29th - May 4th, 2024
Cassie Paine, Magie, 2020

Pedestrian Values reflects on economic shifts, labour patterns, and development in post-industrial urban cities. Using screen-printing, relief carving, interventionist tactics, and metal casting to alter coded materials and infrastructure found in public space, the installations reveal underlying power structures in urban environments, critiquing capitalist value systems focused on profit and development, and how these ideals are built into our everyday environment. (Cassie Paine)

Biography

Growing up in the border city of Windsor, Ontario, the economic precarity of postindustrial cities is a recurring concern in Cassie Paine’s work.  


Vernissage: Thursday, March 28th, 2024 at 5:00pm
Artist Talk: To be confirmed.

Daniel Oxley – Dark Wood

August 17th - September 9th, 2016

Excerpt from catalogue, by Cameron Skene

“If you’re going through hell, keep going” – Winston Churchill

[…]

The state of spiritual suspension is reinforced by Oxley’s recent work: vessels hung from the top of the picture plane, combined with a surface reassembled from disparate painterly strategies, marks, textures and forms. Caves and outcroppings, for instance, become a formal device as well as supporting metaphors for this place of pause.

Cleave, a path in the wilderness by Penelope Stewart

February 18th - March 12th, 2016

Responsiveness to space and an engagement with its architecture, history and ideologies is central to my practice. Recently, these interventions have explored the beehive metaphor in architecture, with connections between the symbolic, political and artistic spin-offs of the beehive. An eco-morphology contemplates the hive, hive culture, desire and loss as metaphor for our utopian aspirations to return to the garden.

Correspondences: Yechel Gagnon and Alexandre Masino

January 7th - February 6th, 2016

Correspondences, by Yechel Gagnon and Alexandre Masino, confronts us with the twofold challenge of seeing both distances and proximities between the works of each artist. While skeptics may be surprised at this particular pairing of artists, they will likely be even more surprised, as well as confounded, by the experience that awaits them: they will be gently struck by the wealth and depth of the dialogues that take shape between two bodies of work that, on the surface, have so little in common.
