Arteries: February 2015

By Genevieve Michaels

VANCOUVER —

Ola Volo Solo Show (lo)
Make
Opens Thursday, February 5, 7 p.m.

ARTERIESOlaVoloThis solo show will exhibit a new body of work from well-loved local illustrator and Emily Carr grad Ola Volo in the wake of her artist’s residency at Make Studios. The exhibit will deal with the distinctions between public and private spaces and how the environments we inhabit define us, be they objects, bedrooms, or homes.

Burst
Ayden Gallery
Opening Reception Friday, February 6, 7-11 p.m.

This very unusual art show will feature all mosaic works! Most of the art will be by local artist Ted Munz. Often drawing inspiration from pop culture and culturally significant personalities, Ted’s work focuses texture and contrast by way of the play light on ceramic and glass tile. The show will also include works by Mark George, Todd Pierce and Nick Gregson.

The Dark – Felt Beautiful
The Fall Tattooing
Opens Friday, February 13 at 8 p.m.

“The Dark – Felt Beautiful” is inspired by a line in “Poem 593” by Emily Dickinson. In it, Dickinson explores the power of the female literary tradition, and locates herself within it with a connection to magic, to witchcraft, to a kind of divine madness, and to transformation,” says curator Whitney Brennan. A stellar line-up of female artists make up the show: Alison Woodward, Megan Majewski, Nomi Chi, Phresha, and Elin Jonsson.

Topographics
James Black Gallery
Opening Reception Thursday, February 21, 5 p.m.

For the second show at new artist-run centre James Black Gallery, located at the former home of Gropp’s Gallery, curators Dan Brown Hozjan and Zandi Dandizette have focused on the landscape of the imagination. Through a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, and photography, the work will explore alternate realities, dreamlike landscapes, and fantastical cartography.

Chopper, Brandon Vickerd
Grunt Gallery
February 26, 7 p.m.

The motorbike could be the most potent symbol of masculinity, power, and speed. In this solo show, Brandon Vickerd will present three pieces of sculpture that deconstruct, reconstruct, and re-imagine the iconic chopper. Coming from a background of custom bike building, the show will distort traditional automotive construction techniques and skew them completely into abstraction.
