Since moving to Hamilton I have seen more visual art than i have I ever have. It seems that the galleries are more accessible and both the Art Crawl and The Pearl Company’s Art Bus really contribute to me feeling that way. Oddly, i haven’t been taking a lot of photos on those trips, maybe because i didn’t want to feel like such a tourist. However, a visit back to Toronto had me snapping photos of some of the artists who interested me most at The Artist Project. Here are a handful of what i enjoyed the most!
Keita Morimoto’s portraits were both whimisical yet haunting. I loved the use of bright colours and the exageration of the eyes making them look a bit more vulnerable than most. I look forward to seeing more of this artist’s work in the future.
Casey Roberts creates paintings with a photochemical process known as cyanotype. Combining cynotype with collage elements and watercolour create a very unique effect that i haven’t seen anywhere before. So lovely, and when i spoke to Casey he seemed like one of the kindest people ever and that always wins points with me.
