Otino Corsano: Banner Year

Wednesday, January 28, 2015 - 5:00am to Saturday, February 28, 2015 - 5:00am

OCAD U Continuing Studies intsructor Otino Corsano continues to reconstruct cinematic elements into new genres for his latest Banner Year solo exhibition presented by pm Gallery. These new paintings feature celluloid-like images of scrolling banners both with and sans mottos. Undulating forms relate to the analog essence of both cinema and painting in the digital era. Contemporary heraldry of corporate branding is also referenced. Corsanos recent work tracks new dialogues through a fusion of oscillating film structures and the highly archival medium of painting as a perpetually resurfacing discipline.

In early 2008, Corsano commissioned the creation of twelve wood panels to be constructed at three times the scale of the original 2007 iPhone. These solid wood forms were produced prior to any public knowledge of the development or release of the first iPad in 2010, although they are similar in dimensions. Featuring rounded edges and silver casing, the resulting series of wood-burned paintings document inspirational quotes from artists, collectors, dealers and other art world insiders culled from the artists memory.

Linked to the Los Angeles art community, Corsano's visual art practice consists of neo-conceptualist, new genre work. He explores areas of meaning production in a variety of media and established Ocean Course Films as an entity to consolidate his collaborative multimedia projects. Corsano has taught at the University of Toronto and is an Instructor at OCAD University. He completed his MFA at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles in 2000. Banner Year is Otino Corsanos fourth Toronto solo exhibition with pm Gallery. The artist personally thanks Pete Commanda for his wood burning expertise. Otino is grateful to Powell McDougall for a decade of professional representation of his work.

Opening Thursday, February 5, 6 to 9 p.m.

Evan Tapper receives OAC grant to create animated bio of John Hirsch

Friday, August 22, 2014 - 2:45pm

Continuing Studies Manager Evan Tapper has received an Ontario Arts Council grant to create My Dybbuk, an experimental animated documentary. The project will tell the incredible life story of the late Canadian theatre legend John Hirsch through hand-drawn rotoscope animation. In 1973, Hirsch directed The Dybbuk at the Manitoba Theatre Centre, a play based on Jewish folklore. The animation echoes the supernatural narrative structure of the play where the ghost of John Hirsch suddenly appears to Evan, 41 years later to inspire a new generation of artists.
