    Biography : Cristina Getson’s latest body of work uses abstraction to capture fleeting moments in time. By applying layers of acrylic paint on wood panels or canvas, Cristina plays with the fluidity of shapes and textures, while exploring abstraction and movement. The processes of layering, scraping, diluting, staining, and fragmenting ultimately lead to the discovery of brilliant and unexpected patterns. A self-taught artist, Cristina Getson received her BASc in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Toronto in 1998. She has been exhibiting her work for over a decade, in Canada and the US. She lives and works out of her home studio in Toronto, Canada. Exhibition : Publications

    Biography : Chloe Hedden looks for the unseen patterns and hidden narratives that reveal the magnificence in all things. Hedden uses the language of light patterns and believes it is the luminous self-made manifest in this world. In her sculptures, the elegant folds or layered facets are carefully built up and add intricacy to the structure while the bright monochromatic colors add impact. This creates a dynamic artwork where light circulates on the surface and shadows are projected on the surrounding wall. Conceptually, she is interested in the history of women in art, specifically the way in which textiles were often the only means of creative expression available. She then plays with the edge between gorgeous object and piece of trash by using upcycled and often garish raw materials in an effort to remind the viewer of our insane and unsustainable culture. ​A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design in 2002, Chloe's paintings and sculptures can be found in numerous public and private collections.

    Biography : In Melisa Taylor’s work, the natural world acts as blue-print while ideas are sourced from historical art and contemporary culture. She pursued studies in Marine Biology before training in classical art of the Old Masters. She grew fascinated by the works of flemish painters Vermeer and Rembrandt whose symbolic use of light influences her practice up to this day. Melisa explores the notion of the sublime through blur and precision. She develops an aesthetic of duality by hybridizing divergent approaches to art. Her studio practice is labour-intensive; various instruments and electric tools are used out-of-context to inject unpredictability in the painting gesture. She has assimilated in her practice an eclectic multilayering process combining pyrography, sanding and detailed stencil compositions on wood. Wabi-sabi -embracing chance- is a central idea in her work, equally so is meticulous control. This results in a subterranean tension that jeopardizes the ethereal appearance of her pieces; arbitrariness and mechanical execution fuse to create what she calls "systèmes faillibles" where spectral motifs seek to emerge out of obscuring lattices. Her work has been exhibited internationally and acquired in private and corporate collections across North America and abroad.

    Detailed Description : I have been engaging my work with notions of repetition, mark-making and blur derived from the pictorial works of artists Jack Whitten, Sterling Ruby and Gerhard Richter. A synthesis of these interests is materializing in this latest body of work in which I explore the assimilation of aerosol painting, pyrography and sanding techniques on wood. This ethereal series solicits our visual perception by suggesting a discoverable lattice of motifs emerging out of defacement and obscuration.
