Something Leads to Something Else: Martin Golland, Lynda Hall, Lise Rochefort and Hilde Schreier at BLINK GALLERY
Curated by Deborah Margo
September 26 to October 5, 2014
Artists’ reception: Thursday, October 2, 2014
Something Leads to Something Else considers how artists conceptualize their research, of how their work comes to be. It is not a definitive account, but rather allowing room for different approaches, across different media, including collage, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics, poetry and video.
Martin Golland's paintings describe a fictional meeting point between built environments and the natural world, resulting in imaginary architectural spaces. At Blink, his multi-media collages have been gleaned from a large archive of material he uses to establish the subjects and multifaceted spaces eventually found in his paintings.
Lynda Hall is also concerned with culture and nature, shown in photographs that are unflinching and unsentimental. There is a shifting interplay in the relationships she establishes between multiple images of animals, shown in two and three-dimensional situations. What she evokes fluctuates, not unlike the roll of a dice.
Lise Rochefort is a freelance writer, poet, parent and researcher, as well as an Associate Poetry Editor for Arc Poetry Magazine. She has created a new, experimental work for the exhibition combining poetry with video.
Hilde Schreier’s work encompasses a variety of media. Her paintings and drawings are concerned with the human condition, whereas her weavings are richly coloured, textured embodiments of imagined landscapes. Here, a meticulous multi-media drawing undertakes to describe a complex system destined to be a large weaving.
Finally, on loan from an Ottawa clay studio, are a series of ceramic glaze samples, promising endless colour combinations.
First week: Friday, September 26 through Sunday, September 28 from 12 to 5 pm
Second week: Friday, October 3 through Sunday, October 5 from 12 to 5 pm.
