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

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:

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:

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.
