Toronto, Canada’s famed Sandra Ainsley Gallery current the narrative glass artworks by WGS Co-Administrators Tim Tate and Michael Janis. The present, titled “One Story is Not Sufficient” featured works by every artist as a solo, and quite a few their collaborative wall murals.
When Michael Janis and Tim Tate met, virtually 20 years in the past, they found a shared fascination of narrative sculpture- one which seeks to reach at a picture that’s each unflinchingly candid in bodily illustration and psychologically evasive. Working collectively, they’re within the simultaneous learn of an instantly recognizable picture that asks the viewer to linger over historical past and meanings that unfurl extra slowly. Mark, line and materials develop into an extension of contact within the act of illustration. The connection of hand to topic, negotiated via the fabric, can elicit a response of each visible and tactile.
With these confines they create work in lots of strategies, however in case you stand barely again and see their historical past an enormous thread of interconnected tales weave via their work from day one. The wonder comes into focus and the viewer sees the perimeters of a world not dissimilar to this one, however a lot extra considerate.
They current this glimpse into that various world, seemingly unstuck in time someplace between previous and future.
