The Bentway is the formerly desolate space under the Gardiner Expressway.
It now connects to the city and joins Fort York to the waterfront neighbourhood. #bentway #bentwayto #toronto #nuitblanche

Eulogy for the Coffin Factory.
Each of the 24 coffins represents the practice of a former artist/occupant of this iconic building on Niagara street.
The building is being turned into (you guessed it!) condos. Where can artists go to produce and show their work? #toronto #nuitblanche #nuiteblanchetoronto #artists #coffinfactory

A Toronto-based visual artist specializing in “Encaustic” painting; an ancient painting technique using heated beeswax mixed with coloured pigments. Melissa has a great love for Minimalism, which is evident in her pieces. She paints with simple shapes (usually lines and/or dots), soft grid lines and a focus on colour. The combination of these elements makes for a soothing and tranquil visual experience. She also finds that the open space of minimally designed paintings extends a great sense of peace, as it provides “room to breathe”.

Come see Mikael Sandblom’s newest series ON NOW
The Clouds and Waves paintings are based on computer assisted abstractions of sky and water. The final pieces have, however, been produced in a very tactile manner: woven tapestries and carved, painted wood.
Representational painting depicts two things. First, there's a subject: the illusionary image behind the surface. Second, there's the craft: the materials and markings on the surface.
But have you noticed that you can't see these two things at the same time? Either you see the subject - the illusion of the image, or you see the traces of making. Your mind must flip back and forth. I'm interested in this threshold. The point of crossing over from subject to material is what I've focused on in this new series. - Mikael Sandblom
