Stretched Painting: Wallis Cheung/ Michelle Foran/ Emily Harrison/ Jennifer Wigmore says
STRETCHED PAINTING explores contemporary works that push beyond the flat rectangular format to occupy space and new materials. Featuring Toronto artists that are expanding painting’s conventions, the exhibit brings new works that merge painting into the realm of sculpture and installation.

Exhibit curated by Emily Harrison.

Opening: Thursday, Sept. 8th 2016
OCADU Student Gallery (52 McCaul)
7-10 pm

Wallis Cheung makes paintings at the intersection of sculpture and collage. Her 3-dimensional work questions the limits of pictorial space, intervening physically with the room. Cheung is a member of the Toronto-based collective, VSVSVS, and is nominated for the 2016 RBC Canadian Painting Competition.

Michelle Foran transforms found objects, such as industrial steel, plastics and piping, into materials with vibrant colour, texture and painterly composition. Her abstract immersive environment, “Half a Grapefruit is a Full Circle,” was recently displayed at Birch Contemporary.

Heavily influenced by her surroundings, Emily Harrison’s practice examines everyday materiality, consumer culture and tropes of the artist studio. Her humorous, site-specific installations have been apart of festivals with the Bata Shoe Museum, Strangewaves and Camp Wavelength.

Jennifer Wigmore is a graduate from OCADU’s MFA program and a founding member of Blunt Collective. She describes her painting process as having an “experimental maximalist approach.” Playing with chance and spontaneity, she pushes the limits of materials, creating process-oriented abstractions. http://www.jenniferwigmore.com/index.html
