June 2 - July 3
Exhibition Opening: Ariane Fairlie

Montreal based artist, Ariane Fairlie evokes emotion and character through her 'Clothing Portraiture'. Concerned with concepts of observation and hyperrealism, she enjoys the inconsistencies that are the result of translating three dimensions into two; They create a beautiful and dynamic realism, different from what can be accomplished with a two-dimensional reference image.

Intimate and surreal, her recent series of bathing suits is a celebration of femininity, and the human condition. The drawings, revealing and bold, strike an unashamed tone and exhibit a subtle sexuality. Void of a wearer, the clothing becomes animate, declaring itself a subject free for interpretation.
