THE PRINTSTUDIO – (RE) VISIONS SANDRA BREWSTER, STEPHEN FAKIYESI & CAMILLE TURNER
Artists Sandra Brewster, Stephen Fakiyesi and Camille Turner challenge notions of “blackness” and representation. Sandra Brewster’s series of mixed media silk screens juxtapose portraits and silhouettes of young men in “bad boy” poses with imagery of toys and objects typically associated with little boys. Stephen Fakiyesi’s prints of oversize playing cards feature images of black kings and queens while Camille Turner’s digital photographs of Miss Canadiana in and around Hamilton’s challenge assumptions about Canadian identity and normative beauty. As part of the popular James St. North Art Crawl, Miss Canadiana will mark her return to her hometown of Hamilton. In their respective works each artist creates a multilayered space wherein blackness is positioned as a marker of normality.
THE PRINSTUDIO – WATER- LUCINDA JONES (MEMBERS GALLERY)
In this series of monoprints, printmaker and abstract artist Lucinda Jones explores water as the elemental basis for all living matter. Before commencing this series, Jones spent time analyzing several aspects of water, in particular its movements and sounds. This intuitive analysis later became the basis for her artwork. Jones intends to guide the viewer on a visual pathway into the rhythm and flow of water.
