Paul J Kneale @ Studio Gallery


In a new site-un-specific project conceived for Toronto’s Studio Gallery, Paul J Kneale explores the change between inform and form in a work that is both installation and event. Drawing on the familiar to create a psychologically dissonant experience, the work positions its subject at the threshold of our process of expressing meaning through material. For No One opens August 13th:

Paul J Kneale – For No One
August 13  – Sept 10

These ‘community’ projects can be appreciated in places like Melrose in Hollywood, to the artist’s neighborhood of Cabbagetown, Toronto. The show runs May 29-June 21. A preview follows: Read the rest of this entry »
