Gallery House presents Akin MOCA artists Julia Hepburn and Zach Atticus Tuinman - two extraordinary artists each with new works.
September 28 – October 25, 2019
Gallery House, 2068 Dundas Street West, Toronto
An exhibition of the day to day, reality and the stories we knit. It touches upon the emotion of empathy, the human spirit and positive perception. The works are composed of oil on panel and sculptures (with some movable parts) and includes such scenes as elevator rides, snowy days, motherhood…and much more. The quiet moments, self-reflection, conscious, unconscious choices define who we are and how we tell ourselves stories to cling to and help carry ourselves into the next day.
Both artists works showcase light each uniquely in their own way sometimes demonstrating humor in darkness. Deceptively melancholic, the small series of paintings and sculpture are so much and more. Each artist background gives us different perspectives from the point of view of age, life stage and various types of mediums that capture the sad, beautiful, precious glimmers of life.
Float into these worlds and find human solidarity in how we each entwine, persevere and overcome hurdles —from the mind numbing day to day, selfless acts, disappointments, random acts in life and discover how to find hope to carry on.
