Forest of Symbols 

Many stories based on the medieval period are intimately related with the forest. Arthurian legend depicts the forest as a place of transition and the unknown where knights willingly go to seek adventure and test their prowess. The road will fork, beasts will attack, and the devil will deceive, but our heroes always find their way.

Residual Tingles 

Mark Puchala's first Montreal exhibition, Residual Tingles, is replete with figures and marks drawn from the natural world, both animal and mineral. Inserted into a semiotic landscape populated by enigmatic scratches reminiscent of old school graffiti or hobo glyphs, these figures float against a background of color gradient fields and lava lamp blobs.

Musical Abstractions 

Considering the predominant influence of music in the creation of his works, It was when he started looking at the different creative processes used in the composition of these songs that came the idea of using musical selections for both inspiration and as a theme for this first solo show. By tracing a parallel between music and painting, this exhibition explores further the notion of abstraction and its role in the creative process, provoking an interesting quid pro quo where the theme of abstraction lends itself to the play of interpretation.

Of Centaurs and Men 

In this body of paintings, Of Centaurs and Men, Mark Liam Smith creates a world of magical realism to examine the idea of liminality. Liminality means threshold or limit and indicates a transitional state or conceptual space between two positions, often dichotomies. The centaur, as a human-horse hybrid, perfectly articulates the liminal position: it is both human and horse while also being neither human nor horse.

Songs of the Inner Chamber 

The photographs of Damian Siqueiros illustrate his recurring concerns surrounding the construction of identity. They do so through the elements represented, as well as the technique used. Content and form are woven into a fabric of continuous reflection and open to questioning our self-representation and the world, what we consider to be essential and true. Each image constitutes the aestheticized shaping of a struggle that is at the same time intimate and social.

RAW 

The solo exhibition RAW is part of a personal, global and open project through which I explore the relationship between cinematic reality and our everyday reality as well possible analogies between the history of painting and the history of cinema.

Sneaky Cannon Fodder 

My works form a sort of unbridled journal. They immortalize the path of a person mystified daily by existence, people, objects, by nothing and everything: me. Although it is very personal, my work essentially broaches a universal theme: the relationship with another. Another who is both an invader and an indispensable ally, another in its material nature, present or absent.

Destined Fauna 

Destined Fauna represents and depicts various wildlife escaping and thriving in an otherworldly utopia, an environment that has been untainted and preserved in perfection. The underlying theme present throughout each piece is the current climate crisis and the irreversible impact it has on wildlife.
