Aggravated Surfaces

Master watercolourist Warren Hoyano presents his contemporary version of this historic medium by revealing the underworld of shadows, stains, marks, and abstract traces from the quotidian. The artist’s inventive technique is a substractive process in which pigment is applied and then water is used to
mimic the natural processes of erosion and aging. Deliberate and accidental effects are exposed in a similar refrain of the patterns of daily life.
The result is delicate wash-like passages that rest beside dark, opaque areas. The feeling of time and process are evident in the work as light
and dark seem to float, while scale and illusion shapeshift in a Rorschach inkblot guessing game.

Toronto/Krakow based Mark Filipiuk interconnects imagery with digital, brush and collage techniques. The photograhic
based works attempts to locate a typology of human personalities. On steel panels are multiple composites of adolescent
youth in the institutional setting of a high school as the literary subject matter. The portraits are created with in-camera
editing and post production digital techniques. The haunting and sparse images on metal plates are imbued with a psychological
charge informed by Filipiuk’s 25 year career as an educator and observer of what Nirvana, singer and songwriter Kurt Cobain
titled “Teen Spirit.” At first the works appear as a mimicry of paint, but the work rooted in photography — seeks to reflect
a merge of drawing, painting and digital based collage.

Forest Core

Maria Albulet’s work radiates a sense of control, maintaining a constant and consistent abstract image-field. This characterizes her as a
contemporary generation of abstract expressionist quietly informed by Joan Mitchell, Philip Guston, and Lila Lewis Irving. Bold colour
blocks of red and black conceptually form as opposed forces accentuating the stillness of a wooded thicket, suggesting that a forest
is a complex living entity of perfected harmony and universal balance. Mississauga based Albulet applies colour in methodical, short, hatch-like
strokes in her paintings. “I love the challenge of visual texture and detail.” The monochormatic colour fields resonate and seem to control
the viewer’s mind with the infinite and ongoing evolution of depth and wonder of the forest.
