Interior Design Show 2013 with IDC (Interior Desigers of Canada), Toronto

In collaboration with IDC (Interior Designers of Canada) and ARIDO (Association of Interior Designers of Ontario) I had the opportunity to present several new artworks at the Interior Design Show 2013 in Toronto. Each year at this event members of the public are invited to consult with an IDC member interior desiger; this exhibition space was configured to incorporate 3 public consultation areas. Layout of the space was designed by 1point0 Interior Design Consultants incorporating furniture elements from NIEUW.

Thanks to Toronto Laser Services for their generous support
in producing the laser cut details in my new series of works entitled "Glowcrylic".

Crack 3D @ Forte Prenestino, Rome, Italy

This event continues to amaze me each time I take part. The Crack Festival goes down in the underground jail cells of an ancient fortress in Rome called Forte Prenestino.  Artists from across Europe gather here each year for a throwdown of printed works in 2011 the theme was 3D - grab your glasses!

....while there I also built this rad lighting object for my hosts at Zabratta Studio in Rome - thanks guys!

RRVM c. P12.2 - SKOL Residency, Montreal

While living in Montreal in 2010 worked as an artist in residence at an artist run center in the Belgo Building called SKOL. It was a collaborative residency based on the structure of a relay race: each artist created a work in response to the documentation of a work by another artist. With each stage of the process artists worked inside the gallery and then in public space. This lead me to research current public space issues in Montreal and I found that there was a Supreme Court battle going on regarding the right to poster in public places. The only legit spaces for postering were apparently on temporary construction hoarding – you wouldn't know it since these hoardings are dominated by a private promotions company named Publicite Sauvage. My response to this controversy was to paste white paper over their posters on a burned out building – my glue mix was infused with lotus oil – I wore a T-Shirt printed with the Montreal postering by-laws. This installation lasted 2.5 days before nearly the same configuration of posters was replaced. A video abstraction of this process was created by Simon Benedict another artist participating in the residency.

Architectural Fragments

For the past few years I've been scouring libraries for black and white line drawings and images of raw structural elements. I have a feeling this project is going to go on for years as I amass a giant collection of architecctural fragments with the goal of re-assembling them into a new structural language.... here's a prototype collage I produced while working out of Studio 802 in Montreal in 2010.

Linked up with Adrian Hayles and Montreal graf writer OMEN for a day of painting inside an abandoned train repair depot (aka the “TA Wall”).... found myself more drawn towards the discarded/collapsed materials littering the site and began collecting wood and bricks into one central area beneath a caved-in skylight. The result was an improvised, spontaneous intervention weaving these materials back into an organic relationship with the existing structure. Wonder if it's still there?

Place Des Arts, Montreal

I've become increasingly interested in the effects of light, shade and shadow. This experiment layers paper within a frame resulting in a fragmented typography. Each layer can shift in relation to the others creating new views through the negative space which is animated by the water fountains at Montreal's Place Des Arts.

Misto @ Trafacka - Language Structure

After working around Italy and checking out Barcelona I headed to Prague where I was invited to work and live as an artist in residence at Trafacka Gallery. The space is incredible... an abandoned electrical transformer station in an old industrial area of the city. The next few posts document the installation pieces which I created on site. The title of my show: MISTO = PLACE.
