Auguries and Dreams, paintings and drawings by Christina Sealey

Suspension, 2016. Oil on Canvas, 30 x 24 inches
Wednesday, November 2, 2016 - 10:30pm to Sunday, November 27, 2016 - 1:30am

The Red Head Gallery will present the exhibition Auguries and Dreams by artist and OCAD U Illustration, Assistant Professor Christina Sealey.

__

From The Red Head Gallery:

Christina Sealey’s practice is based primarily in drawing, painting, and sound. Through her work she has been examining the relationship between identity and environment: the intimate connections between people and the places they inhabit. Auguries and dreams is a collection of new paintings that explore the intangible and mysterious qualities of "night" or "darkness”, a dominant theme in Christina's recent work. These paintings play with the symbolism associated with “night” – in particular the association with the unconscious, transformation, and absence / presence. She is particularly interested in how these ideas influence and intersect with the physical experience of night and darkness. Moments of tension, indecision, transition, and mystery are recurring themes. The play between representation and abstraction emphasizes the themes of mystery and ambiguity, blurring the distinction between the real and the imaginary.  

Christina Sealey is an artist and musician based in Hamilton, Ontario. She holds an MFA in Drawing and Painting from the Edinburgh College of Art. Christina has exhibited throughout Canada and the UK in public and commercial galleries, and she has performed her music in many countries around the world. Her work is represented in private, corporate, and public collections. She has been awarded grants for her painting and audio work from both the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts and from private foundations including the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation. Christina is an assistant professor at OCAD University.

This work was commissioned by Jim Datz, Art Director at The New York Times.

In a brief interview Wenting shared a little bit of what this experience was like:

"I had twenty minutes to accept the job and then about seven hours to do sketches, make revisions, and deliver the final piece. It was a super quick turn-around, which I've heard is often the case with the Op-Ed"

 

Congratulations!

Over the past 8 years at the Ontario College of Art & Design, Doug Panton has taken a particular interest in supporting cross-disciplinary design skills. He has had a successful career as an illustrator and a designer for over thirty years. Doug continues to receive assignments that require the design complexity of a multi-faceted project outcome, this has enabled him to experience and expand his competency in this area. With this industry experience it has allowed him to apply a methodology that further develops an interdisciplinary nature—where designers use illustration techniques and vice versa but most important an understanding of both disciplines.
