Ryan PRICEDifferent Strokes3 - 22 June . 2010Opening celebration with Ryan Price: Thursday, 3 June from 5-8pm
The art of Ryan Price
is, in his own words, unintentional. Spindly figures with bloated heads stand, sprawl and seemingly dissolve into chunks of drywall. Though fragmented, Price's art has a narrative quality akin to the dry point illustrations he has laboriously tailored to written works such as Edgar Allan Poe's 'The Raven'.
A word, a gesture, or the scribbled hint of either, give the impression of a larger-than-life sketchbook in which half-born stories are scrawled in graphite and collaged in layers.Much like people my works are incomplete, delicate and are brought to their current incarnation by building up (with pencil) and destroying (with paint, eraser or sandpaper), often going through several 'lives' before the figure and environment end up being the final piece
. ~ Ryan Price, 2010
brings new drywall works to the gallery, Price's masterful printmaking and the highly anticipated wee drawings together in one superb exhibition. Join Price at the gallery from 5 to 8pm Thursday, June 3rd
-- an opportunity to connect directly with the artist and discuss how, in his words, the smallest mark can either make or break an image!
For those unable to attend the exhibition, please be in touch to receive the exhibition guide as a PDF.
Still Life Paintings
Scott Owles is in studio fresh from a most inspirational trip to Florence, Italy. Be it either figurative or a still life, Owles' realism conveys the sense of skin around a soul, the inner life of the subject matter brought to life through light and shadow. Available in the new collection are 8 x 10 oil on panels right through to large scale oil on linen works. Owles will also be part of our upcoming Summer Series this July and August.
New works by Yann Leroux, Sara Sniderhan, Alain Bonder, Yi Song, Scott Owles and Sean Yelland
Summer in Yorkville sees an International influx of art appreciators and collectors. For the past 4 years Ingram Gallery has looked to edgy group shows featuring fresh works by gallery artists under the Summer Series banner. The calibre and cross section of works available opens up the opportunity for Canadian artists to be collected and exhibited on an International level. This July and August will see sensational new works to the wall by Sean Yelland, the first since his successful 2009 solo Home and Away. Enticing gems like Sara Sniderhan's new oil on panel works, Yann Leroux's figurative studies, Yi Song's compelling interiors and small & large scale works by Alain Bonder round out the mix.
