  1. We have a lot of good things to say about Gabriele Beveridge‘s work, but we are only going to say that we really like her work and we want to see more!

  3. Scottish painter Daniel Mullen is inspired by architecture. He seeks to challenge his understanding of how space can support imagination, evoking new possibilities. Leaving vast area’s of his canvas empty, allowing isolated abstract planes to activate and deactivate surface.

  4. Other worlds, dimensions and magical dreams, Diana Lynn VanderMeulen mixed media collages will take you there, and although we didn’t go to her latest exhibition at Magic Pony, it seems to have been a great one…

    Diana seems to be busy these days and her work is always evolving into something new.

  7. Eddie Villanueva creates interesting spatial interventions: the way he calls into question the dimensionality of space combined with his use of colour and shape, he makes us want to see more of his work up close and personal.

  9. Unportraits, 2010 by Lucas Simões

    In this series of works I invited intimate friends over to tell me a secret as I took their portrait. However, my intention was not to hear their secret, but to capture the expressions of each one at the moment they revealed their secret. I also asked each one to choose a song for me to listen to in my ear phones while I photographed them. And, after the photo session, I asked each one if the secret had a color, and these are the colors the portraits carry. From this photo shooting session I chose 10 different portraits to cut and overlap.”

  10. Melanie Authier creates colourful paintings with intense brush strokes that makes us feel like we are in the middle of a surreal storm. Although her canvases are not enormous, we feel that her work is: we hope to see her paintings in person.

    Melanie is a Canadian painter represented by Georgia Scherman Projects.  She currently lives and maintains a studio in Ottawa.

    You can see her work here.

  11. Val Britton’s intricate work shows abstract landscapes, almost-real routes and maps. These fictional worlds live on a two and three dimensional surface, connecting memories, emotions and places. Her work is full of paper shapes, drawings, staining, printing and painting: they have us daydreaming of traveling to unknown places.

    Cool! There’s some great stuff in there… Thanks for the tip!

  14. We are very intrigued by the artist heath west.

    Starting with his name and finishing with his studies in architecture and art: an Assoc. AIA design architect followed by a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design, a Master of Architecture and a year devoted to studies at the University of Applied Arts, in Vienna, Austria. But aside from his credentials, what you can see in his work is these fantastic and intricate, yet simple geometric-pattern gradients where heath west manages to create some sort of controlled analogue glitch art where there’s no randomness.
