The Artist Project Toronto 2013

The ArtistProject Toronto 2013 – on between February 21st & February 24th 2013, at the Exhibition Place Toronto - offers the public the opportunity to become acquainted with the creations of quite a few contemporary artists.

It’s also an occasion to engage the authors of these exciting works of art in insightful conversations.

Inside the show room, the brisk air of a Canadian winter is replaced with the colorful explosion of shapes and visual metaphors that make the event such a worthwhile pursuit. 

Here are some of the artists and their creations  from the kaleidoscope of this year’s intriguing collection at The Artist Project Toronto:

Sarah Phelps creates abstract art – whose arresting palette of hues, which includes green, blue and verdigris causes the visitor to stop and ponder

Sarah Phelps – Booth # 939

Sarah Phelps – Outcast

Silvia Taylor’s art grabs our imagination with glass contours that come to us from treasure coves of architectural designs, archeological sites and Venitian musings:

Silvia Taylor – Ogee Arroyo- 2012

The eerie calm and magnificence  of the Georgian Bay  scenery and of the surrounding forests resonate in Andrew Peycha’s paintings in an evanescent orchestration of horizontal and vertical lines:

                                                 Andrew Peycha – Early Fall Trail

Alice Vander Vennen’s work reaches out to the visitor on several realms: both visual and tactile.
Most  importantly, these creations  bring about a sense of wonderment at the artistic message that is presented to us: we can’t quite make out all their symbolism, yet all we'd like to do is to keep deciphering them.
