Nicholas Pye: A Silent Storm.
Birch Contemporary is delighted to announce a solo exhibition by Toronto-based artist Nicholas Pye.
A Silent Storm is a body of work about memory, duration, and disappearance. Through the use of large-scale photographic images, video installation and embossed text works, the exhibition speaks about identity over time and notions of voluntary and involuntary disappearance.
The photographic self-portraits in the exhibition use masquerade to depict identity in flux between what is fixed and what is fading. Additionally, the imagery in Rocker, A Silent Storm and Caught in Flight references recollections of masculinity and gentleness. The text works are fragments of a poem written by the artist, while the video installation The Mountain shows the nature of being: birth, life, death. This work, which is set on an infinite loop, cycles through the becoming and the departure of the anonymous subject.

Richard Storms: Common.
Birch Contemporary is pleased to announce Common, a solo exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Toronto-based artist Richard Storms. Featuring seabirds and birds, domestic scenes and abstract representations, Common is an examination of both our natural and built environments.
The subtly coloured "common species", our city's avian co-inhabitants, are part of the urban fabric that mostly go unnoticed because of their ubiquity, and are often ignored or considered a nuisance. The same could be said of the new developments and architectural expressions currently contributing to the city's spectacular growth. Continuing to be inspired by the many experiences – domestic, social, urban and natural – that he encounters daily, Storms notes that a closer inspection of these "common" entities proves worthwhile.

Urban Gallery presents our June 2017 group show: Proud Art celebrates Toronto Pride 2017 with the work of four artists in various media including paintings in acrylic on canvas, digital ink and coloured pencil on paper and canvas, to digital prints on canvas and woodblock. Artists: Hank Blondeau, Jeffrey Mason, Barbara Zumer, Eugene Nam.

Hank Blondeau is a former digital producer reborn as an artist. He teaches part-time at Centennial College and lives and works in Toronto – though his imagination takes him regularly to many other places.
"The world we inhabit is changing so quickly, it is hard to grasp what the lives of the generation before ours went through, never mind what the generations to come will face. Through my work, I explore what these divides mean to us as individuals, our society and to our collective future."

Jeffrey Mason.
U.S. immigrant
A giant and an artist
Drawing mostly cats.

Eugene Nam is an Asian gay man who immigrated to Canada from South Korea 5 years ago. He likes to express his experiences, emotions, and personal philosophy through his work.
"Living in Toronto has been my dream since when I was 16. I feel that Toronto has afforded me a safe space to be who I am and an opportunity to explore both my creative and intellectual sides. I am happy to call Toronto my home. I strive to live my life fearlessly."

Barbara Zumer loves words, creative writing and making a statement. She has worked as a producer in television commercial production for over 20 years both internationally and nationally.
