"Chaos, Colour, Surprise" A Creative Cycle
Presented by Linda Newton
Exhibition Dates:  March 2 to March 22, 2020
Artist in the Gallery on Sat., March 14 and Sun., March 15 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.


“Deep within their roots all flowers keep the light” - Roethke
Over two years the artist, Linda Newton explored through the use of “working in series” a floral theme. As time went by it became an exploration of nature itself, its chaos, colour and surprise. These compositions were first painted on 9 by 12 inch pieces of watercolour paper, graduating to a larger format of 24” square hard board and finally a 22” hardboard circle. Linda has an affinity for the circle format.
Originally she considered the stencils she created as abstract floral calligraphy hence her use of black and grey representing the printed letter. The ground for the paintings are colourful and loose, using either acrylic inks or paint.
Using stencils devised from a landscape painting that she did, the artist developed a theme of the” Dystopian Landscape”, that  hang on the south wall. These paintings reflect/draw attention to the plight of nature. However Linda does reflect her hope with some whimsical touches that “Mother Nature” will prevail.


 EMERGENCE GALLERYExhibition Image Coexistence Jaehyun Han



Presented by Jaehyun Han

Exhibition Dates: March 2 to March 22, 2020

In my work 'Coexistence', I explore the effects of the Korean war through the use of overlapping images of the Korean war and photographs of Korea in recent years. Although South and North Korea have signed the Armistice Agreement, the armistice was not a permanent peace treaty but a ceasefire, and the countries continue to be at war. Most Korean citizens have experienced the Korean war directly or indirectly through formal education and various media. However, they live while forgetting that they are still at war in order to escape the fear of war and the ongoing effects in their lives.
For creating my work, I collected lots of historical images related to Korean war and drawn a line drawing on the transparency fabric by using collected images. In this process, I used sewing as a drawing method.

Jaehyun Han , a Korean-born visual artist and photographer lives and works in Toronto. He had completed the Ontario college diploma in visual and creative arts with honours at Sheridan College in 2018 and studied photographic arts at Kaywon University of Art and Design in South Korea. As a visual artist, he has been exploring how each image affects on other by overlapping two different images. In addition, he is interested in history, persons and places, and the relationship between them.
