Urban Gallery presents our Apr 2017 solo exhibition, Prototype, artworks by Welland, Ontario artist Colin Nun. Colin Nun experiments with how language is depicted and how the viewer perceives language. His text-based paintings explore the idea of conveying the meaning of words, using words themselves as imagery. His carefully constructed typographic motifs are deeply rooted in graphic design, influenced by pop culture, cinema, advertising graphics and ephemera.
Colin is a Canadian-born artist living and working in his hometown of Welland, Ontario. His studies include Niagara College, Canada, from 2000 to 2002, NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2003 for his degree, and OCAD University in Toronto from 2006 to 2009. Colin has exhibited his work at several group shows in Toronto and has received awards from Creative Quarterly.
May 4-31, 2017 | opening reception Sat 6 May, 2-5pm:
Urban Gallery May 2017 group show – Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. Water: Sustaining Life. Water is the world's most precious resource. Our new exhibition, Water: Sustaining Life features the work of four Canadian photographers bringing unique perspectives to water's special significance in our lives and the world around us. Karen Silver is an executive producer of TV commercials and a photographer. "I'm fascinated by reflections, things that at first glance might not be so noticeable. It began with photographing reflections in large soap bubbles and then recently, reflections in water." Maria Ricossa is an actor and photographer who observes people, hoping to recreate truthful behavior onstage or in front of a camera. Drawn to street photography, she watches people – capturing a story or a dramatic moment. She witnesses and documents private moments, after which things will never be the same. Chris Hominuk is a self-taught award-winning landscape photographer. "My passion is capturing the calmness of nature. I'll drive, paddle, or hike great distances to get that one shot. In my work I concentrate on near / far exposures to reveal the importance of what's both in the foreground and the distance." Alex Turner's work has been exhibited in Toronto and Western Canada. His photographs are in collections in Canada and the US. "These compositions seek an alignment of visual elements into an abstract whole. The results – sometimes manipulated – are often more like paintings or etchings than photography." ... more
