Soon Comes Night. Featuring works by Steven Beckly, Martin Bennett, Sarah Sands Phillips.
Soon Comes Night explores images as an unfixed entity – between light and dark, abstract and representational, constructed and incidental. Painterly and photographic processes of abstraction, erasure and physical manipulation reveal alternative ways for imagery to surface over time, encouraging a prolonged act of looking and contemplation of duration. The title of the exhibition is inspired by a common engraving on sundials – in Latin, Mox Nox, or "Soon Night" – which reflects the work's sense of time, and its hinging between definitive states.
Soon Comes Night includes previously unseen paintings by Martin Bennett (Saskatoon), video and works on paper by Sarah Sands Phillips (Toronto), and new works by Steven Beckly (Toronto).

Shannon Garden-Smith: Brick in, brick up, brick over and over.
Bricks are most often accompanied by other bricks. They are objects which become productive through repetition – brick by brick. Despite their reputation for firm immobility, bricks have action built in. To be precise, they are verbs as much as objects: closing, paving or facing by bricking in, up or over.
With Brick in, brick up, brick over and over, Shannon Garden-Smith presents a series of sculptures which disorient the work bricks do. Using domestic decorative filters and foregrounding a tactile, repetitive process, Garden-Smith offers up objects which hold too much and too little in an attempt to resist predetermined, productivist ends.
