Toronto-based Roula Partheniou makes remarkable sculptural replicas based on domestic items, construction materials and office supplies. Whether stacked, shelved or left leaning against the wall, the artist’s use of precise forms and a reductive colour palette elicits a double take that invites viewers to pause and reconsider how their initial reading of common visual cues can often be deceptive.
108 Leyton Ave
Toronto artist Kelly Mark makes work informed by a keen interest in everyday observations, from compiling lists to channel-surfing to recombining common phrases. 108 Leyton Ave is perhaps her most personal work comprising a precisely synced video of the artist essentially playing cards and conversing with herself.
The exhibition continues at UWAG from September 17 to October 31, 2015.
