Sheryl Dudley Time and Again

As a follow-up to her 2014 show, Between Here and There, Dudley continues to mine generations of family history discovered while preparing for a move.

A stack of old boxes found in a closet reveal history, nature, and likeness in random photos dated from the 1920s through to the early 1960s.

While many of the images she uncovered were documentary evidence of events and milestones, Dudley chooses to focus on candid images and casual family gatherings. These natural interactions allow the subjects to shine through with authenticity. She re-photographs the originals and alters each in a way to suggest the marking of time and erosion of memory. Finally, the images are ‘laid to rest’ in a forested setting derived from a series the artist shot in the Canadian Shield.

Jane LowBeer Walking 

LowBeer's new series of oil paintings is a discourse in animating the landscape. A palette of greys, purples and greens, and the construction of push-and-pull render the figure over fields and bush. She plays with dimension; some paintings even wrap around a corner, or read sequentially like a book, as they defy the rectangle.

This is LowBeer's fifth exhibition at loop. She studied printmaking at the venerated Atelier 17 in Paris and her work has won numerous prizes. Her art is found in private and public collections in New York, Paris, Montreal and Toronto including London's Victoria & Albert Museum and the Bibliothèque National de Paris, France.
