Island: a video project by Jacky Sawatzky

Saturday, December 8, 2007 - 10:15pm

Island is a visual and audio portrait of the shoreline of Toronto island. This project was developed for the media festival "Intermodem" in Hungary, September 2007.
For 8 days, Jacky Sawatzky walked a section of the shoreline documenting these walks with a video camera. The videos where uploaded to a the festivals server. At the end of the festival week the walk around the island was completed as well as the video.
On saturday December 8 th at 5.14 PM the newly edited version of this video will be screened in Jacky Sawatzky's studio at Gibraltar Point Centre for the Arts on Toronto Island. The art center's van will pick people up at the Wards island ferry dock for the 4.30 PM ferry (arriving Wards at 4.45 PM). This van will return to Wards for the 6.45 PM ferry back to the mainland. For people who want to take a bike, the centre is a 15 minute beautiful ride from the Wards ferry dock. The studio is the one with the ramp facing the courtyard and a note on the door. Snacks will be served and if you want a drink, BOB. For people with severe cat allergies, at the least one cat will be present. Dogs are not welcome. (sorry!)

Book Launch: Body broken--Body redeemed: art of Maria Gabankova

Maria Gabankova
Wednesday, November 28, 2007 - 10:00pm to 11:30pm

Faculty of Art Professor Maria Gabankova celebrates the launch of her new book, Body broken--Body redeemed, published by Piquant in Great Britain.
The second volume in the Piquant Editions VISIBILIA series of 'visual biographies' features over 40 full-colour reproductions of paintings and installations by Czech-born Canadian artist Maria Gabankova. Introduced by John Franklin, director of the Imago arts organization in Canada.
'Gabankova's theology, like her art, sounds a wake-up call. It calls us to pay attention to the state of our world and the signs of our times. Nobody who passes by her art can fail to be touched, shaken or, indeed, shocked by the power of her imagery. It is, in one word, wake-up-art. More than that, however, it invites our tired, fragile and broken bodies to the wedding banquet of the Body Broken For You, where we can be fully re-nourished and redeemed.'
--Adrienne Dengerink Chaplin

Faculty of Art students Danielle Coleman and Maya Skarzenski present: Viscous

Sunday, October 30, 2016 - 4:00am to Saturday, November 12, 2016 - 5:00am

Opening: Saturday October 30, 1 to 4 pm

Danielle Coleman and Maya Skarzenski will be showing a series of abstract paintings that celebrates paint overwhelmed. Coleman and Skarzenski present paintings in different styles but maintain similar themes of anthropomorphism and paint as a substance.

Hard edged, and a little tongue-in-cheek, Skarzenski’s paintings are created with skins of acrylic. The skins act as solid objects independent of the canvas, much like collage or assemblage. These paintings undergo an identity crisis as they no longer behave like paint while being purely paint. These skins are torn, nailed and stapled. Paint becomes overbearing and intrusive. Paint is now physical.

Coleman’s work is a synthetic happiness, groove and a little “happy go lucky” attitude captured on canvas. After studying under John Kissick’s 1980’s disco flare and layered polka dot sticker aesthetic, inspiration of bright colours, collaging of older paintings, organic shapes and repeated layers came about. Abstracted works are created under unconscious decision making with spontaneous colour choice and additions of form over multiple days. All works completed with acrylic with various pieces incorporating oil. Glitter and metallic paints bring out the alternative new wave rocker in everyone. Seeking the “dance around the room” excitement and a whole lot of happiness.
