Danielle Coleman & Mashayla Richie Abstract Works

Danielle Coleman & Mashayla Richie paintings, 2017

This exhibition features a series of works by two abstract painters from OCAD University; Danielle Coleman and Mashayla Ritchie.

Both artists bring a distinct approach to their work. Ritchie experiments on mixed media and texture with application and technique, while Coleman introduces experimental materials and old world imagery.

Mashayla Richie, 2017

Works featured by Ritchie includes studies and abstract paintings.

Acrylic paint and oil pastel/sticks are explored on miscellaneous surfaces. Utilizing plastic baggies as piping bags for acrylic paint, she creates an intrigue to the overall composition and texture of the work. In combination with an unconscious train of thought, these works embed past felt emotions and mental states.

Material experimentation is important to Danielle Coleman’s art practice. The use of glitter, protective sponge liner, electrical tape and floral textiles and her studio’s atmospheric component of disco and alternative break up tunes frames a context for the creative process.

Danielle Coleman

Combinations of colours reflect kitschy, nostalgic graphics and retro floral textiles through mixing vibrant, reflective and neon acrylic paints. Works seek to visualize the kitsch feeling of heartbreak of post relationship status.

XPACE: External Space: After Darkness, Manuela Morales

XPACE: External Space: After Darkness, Manuela Morales

Manuela Morales video, After Darkness, is currently on view at XPACE’s External Space gallery located in OCAD U Library Services: Learning Zone.

After Darkness, is a video that touches on the emotional aftermath of sexual violence that occurred between two family members.

Morales uses a two-channel video, juxtaposing family emails with landscape. Capturing the tranquility of the landscape with audio bytes of birds, footsteps, and wind blowing through grass with email correspondence between family members. The back and forth online communication reveals to the audience the intricacies and uncertainties faced by the family as they work together and offer support.

The text in After Darkness creates a nuanced and honest conversation about the effects of sexual assault on a personal and collective level….Morgan Sears William

On until April 4
