April 2017 E-INVITE
Knight Of Infinite Resignation
March 25 – May 6
Critically acclaimed International artist Diane Landry-[Quebec], blends the properties of light/shadow and sound, infused with elements of kinetic sculpture, electronics and ready-made pieces. Landry’s elegant and ominous installation evokesdeath and emptiness amid mesmeric continual motion. The forlorn installation juxtaposes a dearth of resources and humankind’s easy distraction by technological objects. Landry is one of Canada’s most prominent artists, holding an MFA from Stanford University California and has shown extensively throughout Canada and internationally. She has presented over 100 exhibitions/performances and is in collections worldwide. Show continues until Saturday May 6th.

Critically acclaimed International artist Marcel Dzama’s work is characterized by his intricate immediately recognizable visual language that draws from a diverse range of references and artistic influences, including Dada, Bauhaus and Marcel Duchamp. Dzama works in multiple disciplines to bring his cast of human figures, animals, and imaginary hybrids to life, and has developed an international reputation and following for his art that depicts fanciful, anachronistic worlds. In A Game of Chess, Dzama illustrates these juxtaposed methodologies that push the limits of art, culture and interaction in a unique style reminiscent of the Triadic Ballet of the 1920’s. Dzama has shown extensively throughout Canada and internationally his works are in collections and major museums and galleries worldwide. Show continues until Saturday May 6th.
