Narrating the surreal requires wit, imagination, provocation and cunning. These traits belong inherently to all artists in DREAMWEAVERS. They make no attempt to disguise such inclinations which is a great seduction.

Film in collaboration with DREAMWEAVERS 
Exhibition – 02/14 - 04/13

Directed by: Sing J. Lee (@singjlee) and Sylvia M Zakhary (@mamaganoosh)

Excited for this! —> Dreamweavers examines the surreal in contemporary society and the paradox of fact and fantasy through artists who operate from a deeply imaginative, often provocative, psychological space.

“Walk Back Home” by @EkeneMaduka, is our next #TDC20-funded show. Ekene’s work (oil on canvas) focuses on her experiences as an immigrant living in a new environment. The goal of Ekene’s work is not to tell a vast story of what “living in Nigeria” is like, but to connect with viewers through portraits and tell them a story of her personal experiences.
——
Opening Thursday, February 7th, in Winnipeg, Canada, at La Maison des artistes visuels francophones (@maisondesartistes). “Walk Back Home” runs until March 2nd, 2019.

@skipxd Presents “Reflections of Ghetto Stories”. Within this body of work, Skip Brea is making an attempt to articulate the connection between the artistic experience of studying the historical cannon of painting and its benefits to thinking while viewing visual perception as a cognitive activity. More clearly, what is the history in front of him and how does he choose to deconstruct and reconstruct it back together. Arguing that artistic activity serves as a form of reasoning and a way to think with the senses, his reactionary way of compositing a painting reflects on his individual, and touches on literature as influence.
