This post is a response to @JayMoller1 who saw my show on Sunday 16,14 at The Garrison.

Because twitter has a specific letter count restriction, it is obvious a simple tweet/reply to him cannot and will not suffice.

Dear @JayMoller1

ANOTHER DARK DAY PASSES

image

Exhibition dates: February 5 to March 1, 2014
Opening Vernissage February 6 from 7 to 11 pm

'Another Dark Day Passes' is an exploration of psychedelic landscapes and alternative realities. This show invites viewers to experience the gallery as a portal to an altered psychological state. The works presented oscillate between material reality and dream-like illusion. The holographic and iridescent aesthetic that runs through the show is meant to communicate optimism by transforming the gallery into an ethereal environment. Conversely, dissonant elements have been incorporated with the intent of disarming the viewer to release meditative energy and open up the imagination. It is a psychological mirage, where confusion and darkness give way to possibility and hope.

Peering Out Into An Abyss

OH HI

I have a show coming up at OZ Kafe in Ottawa! How nice. You should come if you live there and if you don’t that’s too bad!

"The ‘Julia Dickens’ is an artist volcanically erupting from beneath Toronto’s precambrian crust. Millions of years of evolution has seen The Julia’s deep reservoirs of ink and paint form lines and shapes reminiscent of modern day people, along with words and other nouns. These artifacts have been gathered by scientists, with various instruments and official clothing, in order to give an insight into a mystical world hidden deep within the Earth, and in your own mind, man. Dig it."

My friend Matt King wrote that ^ (no not Matt King from DDMMYYYY/Absolutely Free, Ottawa’s Matt King who is also a great dude). The show is happening Monday the 16th,  7 pm to 2 am. WAHOO LETS PARTY or whatever have a nice moderately exciting Monday evening. There will be snacks! I’m going to make a playlist! OZ has great cocktails, I’m going to drink all of them! XOXO see u there <3
