Derek Sullivan: The Missing Novella

abstract artwork
Saturday, September 19, 2015 - 1:00pm to Sunday, January 3, 2016 - 10:00pm

The work of Toronto-based artist Derek Sullivan builds on historical legacies of both conceptualism and modernist art and design. For his solo exhibition at Oakville Galleries, Sullivan will stage Gairloch Gardens as a fictional country house akin to those described by authors such as E.M. Forster and Patricia Highsmith. Featuring installations of books, screens and furniture sculptures; wall drawing; and a selection of recent works from his ongoing Poster Drawings series—including new works referencing decorative mirrors—Sullivan reimagines Gairloch estate as the setting of oblique narratives of class conflict, romance, family melodrama, and murder.

Venue & Address: 
Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens

Otino Corsano: Banner Year

Image of a banner
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.

Scott Sawtell: There is a light that never goes out

Painting of an alligator hanging from vines.
Tuesday, June 3, 2014 - 4:00am to Saturday, June 28, 2014 - 4:00am

Reception: Friday, June 13, 7 to 11 p.m. during art crawl)

OCAD U alumnus exhibition

B Contemporary presents their first solo exhibition of recent paintings by Scott Sawtell. Each painting in the series “there is a light that goes out” shows a majestic animal in situ, with flowers blooming from them.

The paintings are purposefully uncanny. The animals might be sleeping or they might be waking. They might be alive or they might be dead. The flowers might be growth or funereal flowers placed upon them. The animals could be metaphors for people, or they might just be animals. Sawtell’s goal is for them to exist in no particular space which allows the viewer to place them wherever they imagine.

About the Artist:
Scott has an M.F.A from the University of Waterloo and is a graduate of OCAD University. As well as maintaining a vital artistic career showing work across Canada and the United States, Scott has previously curated exhibitions for The Town of Newmarket, the City of Kitchener and Oakville Galleries. He also organized and participated in 60 Painters; an ambitious exhibiton of contemporary Canadian painting which was held at Humber College in May of 2012.

Scott Sawtell is also an art instructor at Brock University in St. Catharines, as well as Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario. He previously taught at OCAD University in Toronto, Ontario.

Postcards from the Psyche: Images from an Interior Source

Thursday, October 2, 2014 - 4:00am to Friday, October 24, 2014 - 4:00am

OCAD University's Alumni Association in partnership with Yellow House presents a solo exhibition of artist John N. Inglis’ recent watercolour works.

Weaving personal and psychological narrative with considerations of universal myth, Inglis’ vibrant imagery suggests that by looking inward, and paying homage to our own subconscious visions, we can inform greater philosophical theories on the shared human experience.

This exhibition marks the inaugural show of what will be an annual series of alumni solo exhibitions presented by the OCAD U Alumni Association, and hosted by Yellow House.

Opening reception: Thursday October 2, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Luke Painter

Luke Painter’s new solo exhibition, titled Rebound, investigates the dramatic and often-bizarre ways in which historical styles are translated through design and architecture practices. Investigating specific revivalist trends in his ink on paper works, Painter digs into Louis Comfort Tiffany’s resuscitation of medieval glass techniques in late 19th century commercial applications; the 1980’s filtering of Art Deco, Pop and Minimalism in the work of designer and architect Michael Graves; and the continual mutation of Gothic architecture in the 20th century. In his new body of work including ink drawings on paper and stained glass sculpture, Painter both references and re-contextualizes these chameleonic sources. Recent exhibitions of his work include numerous exhibitions throughout Toronto, Montreal, Par Nature at Bonneau-Samames Art Contemporain in Marseille, France (solo 2009), Pulse New York Art Fair (2009), Portland Documentary and Experimental Film Festival (2009) and the Athina Art Fair in Greece (2009). Luke has received numerous research and artist grants from Hexagram/Concordia, Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council. His work has been reviewed by many notable publications including: Canadian Art, Border Crossings, The Globe and Mail, and The National Post.
