Exhibition is currently on view from November 13 to December 5 at LE Gallery, 1183 Dundas St. W, in Toronto.
It's been a while since an update. I've been off taking my licensing exams and experimenting on some new things. The lastest piece is a full drawing set of an absurd construction. I have my typical axo's along with floor plans, elevations and detail drawings and it's given the work new dimension. Looking forward to the next project where I plan on enlisting help from engineers to develop a new structure. If you are in Montreal this weekend you can see the whole set at Papier 14 between 25-27. http://www.papiermontreal.com/
The installation is up at Convenience Gallery 58 Lansdowne Ave. It's the first real 1:1 scale installation and I can start to see how I can bring some elements of the drawings into fruition. I'm hoping this will be the beginning of more larger scale installation work so if you're in the Parkdale area exploring West Queen West please take a look. It's just two blocks north of Queen at Lansdowne -- drop me a line and tell me what you think!
I'll be down in New York this week for the opening of a group show I'm a part of with artists Rachel Bone, Benrei Huang and Alex Paik. I'm looking forward to seeing their work. I've created 6 new pieces for the show which are inline with my recent explorations into architectural redundancy so if you are in the area please stop on in. The opening is Thursday, February 14th at 6:00 pm at Nancy Margolis Gallery (523 West 25th) but will run through March 23rd. Though I'll concede that my work is not the most ideal for a romantic evening, I'll try to offset this by bringing an assortment of Hershey's kisses -- and maybe a bag of chips.
A while back I was commissioned to do a couple pieces for a small publication that was to accompany a couple of short essays by Tyler Brule and Jonathan Glancey. Since I had to work with revisions a lot of the drawing was drawn and collaged together in photoshop. To the left is the original finished piece entitled "The Crucible" and to the right is the final drawing which accompanied Tyler's essay The Perfect Community.
Thanks to everyone who managed to endure the crazy heat and were able to make it out to one of the shows this summer. The shows at Open Studio and LE gallery are up for the rest of the month so come on down. I forgot to mention the other works at Openstudio are really great and I'm proud to be sharing space with Amber Albrecht, Jenna Law, and Derek Sullivan. Here are some shots of the opening nights.

I have a piece up at the Harbourfront Centre in the exhibition titled "Constructed View". It is one of seven exhibitions which make up the Harbourfront Centre's winter programming. There is a lot of really great work so if you get the chance and are looking for something fun to do, have a stop in. Image Credit: Alex Kisilevich.
