Mixed Media New Works

The landscape that surrounds us has the ability to affect us subconsciously as we go on with our day to day lives. Anne Johnson pulls these images out from the subconscious and creates palpable works on paper that confront the viewer in a way that cannot be ignored. Transforming the landscape into bright pastel works, Anne Johnson gives us a fresh way to view our surroundings, using her own psyche as the medium.

Ottawa artist, Choleena DiTullio, finds extraordinary inspiration for all aspects of her life in the ordinary things around her. And when it comes to art, she has an insatiable need to paint the fish that she sees lurking in those every-day things: the fanned back of an Adirondack chair is an unmistakable fish tail; a Spam can is obviously a fish body; and a bike wheel is a fish eye.

Daniel Corbeil creates landscapes that at first glance appear as if they are actual places. He is known primarily for his large-scale installations that tackle environmental issues. The pieces in Fabricated Landscapes, including an impressive scale model, appear as if they are taken from aerial photographs from great heights and in various seasons. The work, 13 years in process is inspired by the Abitibi mines in northern Quebec that is known for its rich heavy metal resources. The exhibition speaks to environmental issues, erasure, landscape, fragmentation, liminal spaces, simulation and perception.
Gallery 101 is located at 301 ½ Bank Street, 2nd Floor. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 10am-5pm
WURM GALLERY | INVISIBLE CINEMA presents:
A Show by Kristen Saar and Sinisa Janjic
One Month Exhibit
January 14th – February 23rd, 2011
Opening: January 14th 8pm-11pm
This collection of seven works are the result of a long process that essentially stems from a short film entitled “Mary.” In this movie, the main character, Mary, is surrounded by a post nuclear war setting. From the original footage, stills were taken and turned into paintings. This process mainly involves image editing and transferring, done with minimal use of computers. The final transfer is applied to a masonite sheet of wood. Every frame is 55 x 34 inches. These paintings reference the apocalyptic situation in which Mary finds herself and ascribes her reality to it.

To start the year on the right foot, Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle presents, from January 15 to February 22, the work of two artists inspired by a rather particular object: the iron.
Nathalie Lavoie will present drawings which replicate the pattern of
the openings found on the soleplate of the iron, as well as the video
of a performance in which she irons a sheet on the ground. Thus, she
invites the observer to reflect on the formal components of the iron
and the repetitive gesture associated with it.
On the other hand, Anne-Marie Sirois will exhibit a series of amusing
sculptures made from old irons and other unusual objects found in flea
markets. Her sculptures are the direct result of a spontaneous
creative process relating to play.
You are invited to the opening of the exhibition on Saturday, January
15 at 1 p.m. Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle is located at 81
Beechwood Avenue, in Vanier, and is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.,
Tuesday to Saturday.
