Dark, But Not Anti-Life. Described as being both whimsical and dark: these paintings are a reflection of life, and awaken the mysteries of being human…they conjure up the imagination within.

The Hang Man Gallery is accepting submissions for the 2nd half of the 2011/012. If you are interested in exhibiting, please see:

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:

Since time immemorial, humans have used the visual arts to both define and understand that which is timeless.
Through procreation, through knowledge and belief systems and the creation of works of art and architecture, we have tried to create that which can withstand the confines of time. One might say we have striven to achieve a measure of immortality.
But, does time actually exist, or is it merely an invention we use to measure change? As Zoomers and Artists, what are we creating that might survive the ebb and flow of time?
Send in one image of a two or three-dimensional work in any traditional or new media on your interpretation of the Timeless.
Deadline for TIMELESS – September 23, 2011

Personal Differences
queerness and masculinity
paintings by Randal Fedje
August 2-21 at gallerywest
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 4th, 7-10 pm

gallerywest is located at 1332 Queen St. West, Toronto Ontario.

The idea that masculinity and queerness are separate entities is a fallacy. The image of the nineteenth century muscle man in a singlet and a giant handlebar mustache (the iconic ideal of masculinity), is also an iconic figure of the homosexual masculine male stereotype.

Our ideas of gender and sexuality are morphing everyday, becoming an amoebic form spitting out and engulfing not only our everyday thoughts of what is and what isn’t, but also creating new beings, individuals that were perhaps once thought of as non existent.

re | mem | ber
By Gaston Soucy
July 21 – September 23

re|mem|ber goes beyond engaging the observer from a cognitive point of view and pushes towards producing an emotional reaction when a seemingly static bi-planar object that is in fact 3-dimesional transforms as the elements of time and memory are introduced.
