LIA HALLORAN FEATURED IN EDWARD GOLDMAN'S ART MATTERS

"A few months ago, in the midst of the pandemic, I had the pleasure of visiting Lia Halloran’s studio where I experienced these works in progress. Of course, no hugs, no kisses were allowed, just masks and safe distance. But, let me tell you, looking closely at her paintings, I felt that I was diving deep into the cosmos communicating with stars, gods and muses."

ANTONIA WRIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN GROUP EXHIBITION "NATURAL TRANSCENDENCE"
AT OOLITE ARTS FROM JUNE 16- AUGUST 22, 2021

"This group show presents works that reflect an ethereal sensibility toward nature. During a time when we were forced to stay home, away from public spaces and other people, the relationship between humans and nature shifted, causing a NATURAL TRANSCENDENCE, and a renewed sense of gratitude for the natural elements that surround us."

"WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT VANCOUVER ANYWAY?"
"WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT VANCOUVER ANYWAY?"
Jim Adams featured in The Tyee review of 'Vancouver Special: Disorientations and Echo', at the VAG.

"Adams often features himself in his work, portraying himself as Zeus with a freaky looking grizzly bear. The work is a wonderful reminder that figurative painting is not only relevant, it’s ferocious. His images stare straight out from the canvas, locking you into their gaze. But before the relationship becomes a virtual stare-down, humour, compassion and joyous surrealism disrupt the intensity. Liberation ensues."

ARTILLERY MAGAZINE

"Solmi reimagines these figures as devilishly smiling partiers, who are unconcerned with the people – particularly Native victims of colonialist action – who are trampled over by their revelry. The show, through all its varied mediums, points a finger towards the rampant deification of these historical figures despite the atrocities and pain they perpetuated and profited from."

"For Pride Month this year, we spoke with artists of the LGBTQIA+ community about their own self-portraiture and the act of expressing oneself through art. From blown glass to photography to painting, these artworks show us how artists can represent themselves across a wide array of media and genres, including both abstraction, realism, or alter egos."

EDIE BEAUCAGE INTERVIEWED FOR EMERGING ARTISTS COLLECTIVE
EDIE BEAUCAGE INTERVIEWED FOR EMERGING ARTISTS COLLECTIVE

"My paintings seems spontaneous, but it is not so unexpected, considering the amount of work I do before engaging in a series. I can think about a subject for months before I paint it. I obsessively accumulate many images in my notebooks around a topic. Afterward, in the studio, it is momentarily translated into paint. I know what I want to paint, and then I let the images develop and let them flow. I discover my pictures as I paint them, and I love the surprise of this process."

INTERVIEW COVERS THE SPAN OF HIS CAREER, INCLUDING HIS CURRENT SHOW AT LUIS DE JESUS LOS ANGELES

"I have to be knowledgeable about what came before me, but also use all the tools that are available today. So, I figured out how to domesticate technology. Instead of it feeling cold and distant, I blended it with organic painting texture, and drawings, and with motion capture I created something that, in my opinion, is very human. You feel like you want to touch it, and that’s a feeling that normally doesn’t happen with digital media."
