Live project bloggyThe Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library is presenting the artworks of New York City-based artist Jordan Broadworth in the Library’s Art Gallery.

Jordan’s exhibit explores the death of painting, one of Art’s more enduring themes. The story of the medium’s demise and rebirth has been repeated, retold and reenacted so often that it underlies the breadth of contemporary practice.  His work, which appears highly digitized at first glance, initially takes shape within the more traditional practice of drawing.  Of his current works, the artist states,”My paintings are a study in how building-up necessitates taking down and absence haunts the structures of sight.”

Jordan Broadworth was born in Esquesing, Ontario in 1968.  He studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design prior to graduating from the University of Guelph’s Master of Fine Art program in 1997.  He has exhibited in private and public galleries since 1994.  In addition to painting, Broadworth is also a curator and writer.  His paintings are included in collections in North America, Europe and the UK.

His current artworks can be viewed at www.jordanbroadworth.com

This exhibit runs until July 27, 2014.

PAT_Courtyard_BLOGThe Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library is presenting the collage paintings of Montreal-based artist Peggy Ann Turner in the Library’s Art Gallery.

Peggy Ann Turner’s exhibit explores the places we call “home”.  Whether these places are rural or urban, old or new, permanent or temporary they impact our lives and our emotional well-being.  Peggy Ann’s works are constructed from her memory of places and her 30 years experience working as an architect observing and creating built environments.

The images, however abstract, express real conditions of buildings, cities and nature. This series of collage paintings are constructed and structured as built forms.  Peggy Ann is able to express emotions and mood of the specific place by playing with colour, patterns, textures, shapes, and volumes.

A graduate from McGill School of Architecture and practicing architect for over thirty years, Peggy Ann is currently pursuing her passion of art.

Her current artworks can be viewed at www.peggyannstudioart.tumblr.com

This exhibit runs until May 25, 2014.

The Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library is presenting the abstract paintings of Toronto-based artist Matt Killen in the Library’s Art Gallery.

Matt Killen depicted urban spaces in his earlier paintings. Recently, the focus of his work has shifted to found still lifes, such as piles of demolition and renovation debris and even the documentation of a transformation of his own home.  Of his principal aim, the artist states,

“The objective is to build complex compositions that feature contrasts between form and content, flatness and painterliness, while still maintaining compositional and thematic cohesion.”

Matt received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University and completed and his Masters of Fine Arts in visual arts form the Université du Québec à Montréal.  He is a founding member of the Centre de recherché urbaine de Montréal, a Montreal-based artist collective and publisher. His work has been presented in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Pittsburg. He currently lives and works in Toronto.

Her current artworks can be viewed at www.mattkillen.com

blog attackThe Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library is presenting the abstract paintings of Montreal-based artist Chrissy Cheung in the Library’s Art Gallery.

Chrissy’s work aims to go beyond what appears on the canvas at first glance. This sentiment is echoed in her artist statement. She states, “ My work touches on borders, the in-betweens as well as raw imagination. Every image initially seems abstract, but on further observation has a deeper sense and plot to the image. Each image has a subtle narrative which unfolds.”

Chrissy received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from ConcordiaUniversity and completed an artist residency program in painting at the Banff Centre for the Arts in 2005.  In 2008, she was accepted into the Emerging Artists Viewing Program at the Drawing Centre in New York. Her work can be found in private and corporate collections across Canada.

Her current artworks can be viewed at www.observeroftime.com

This exhibit runs until December 8, 2013.

Drawing inspiration from history and archeology, her work is largely concerned with the study of cultural sites. From the beaten track to the frontier, Jessica explores places where history and mythology are woven into the landscape, and
where contemporary landscape issues emerge.

Jessica received her MFA in Studio Arts from Concordia University in 2007 and is the recipient of several awards such as the W.B. Bruce European Fine Art Travel Fellowship and the Roloff Beny Prize. Her work has been exhibited in Canada and in the United States and is held in various private and public collections.
