On Saturday, February 21st, Mira Godard Gallery is pleased to open an exhibition of new paintings by PETER HARRIS. Artist present.

"My recent paintings focus on the defining elements of a contemporary urban landscape that surround us all as city dwellers. I've chosen to paint these ubiquitous subjects at night, using the darkness like a stage curtain, creating spaces that highlight my subjects with almost reverential illumination while isolating them from the background. The objects of the urban landscape, the restaurants, gas stations, municipal buildings, streetcars, buses and parking lots that take centre stage in my paintings form a distilled and concentrated version of urbanity. The world I paint is cleaned up and pared down, a small oasis of solitude and order to contrast the realities of daily life in the city."
Peter Harris

PETER HARRIS attended the University of Waterloo, graduating with a B.A. in painting in 1997. He has exhibited in both Canada and the United States and has received several awards including an Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, an Ontario Arts Council Exhibition Grant and a Waterloo Region Arts Fund project grant. Harris' work is found in numerous private and corporate collections throughout North America and Europe including Colart Collection, Montreal; KLSAL, Erfurt, Germany and OPSEU, Toronto.

PETER HARRIS lives and works in Toronto.

To arrange an interview with the artist, or for more information, please contact the gallery at (416)-964-8197, via email: godard@godardgallery.com, or visit: www.godardgallery.com.




Printmaking is a highly varied form of art making. As with painting, each artist has a unique hand and each brings sensitivity to their chosen medium. Brigid Toole Grant's wood cuts have a compelling sincerity. Subjects are depicted with a strong and direct economy of line. Fred Ross' bold choice of colour, smooth yet defined lines, and confident creation of an image regardless of the medium underlie the mastery of one of New Brunswick's finest artists. Ann Manuel's work, whether in painting, drawing, or printmaking shows the artist's interest in the culture of her communities. Her monotypes, lift drawings, etchings, and block prints all explore the lines of our lives as much as the lines on the surface of the medium. Bruno Bobak experimented with many varied forms of printmaking throughout his career. His work has been collected by many museums and galleries, including the National Gallery of Canada. Charlotte Jones' Japanese wood block technique uses colour in a delicate way. The pigment seems to float on the surface of the paper, almost shimmering with an ethereal glow. In Christine Koch's linocuts we feel the cold of the remote locations she visits on her excursions with groups of geologists. These make one want to curl up with a good cup of cocoa and contemplate the great vastness of our world. Francis Wishart's monotypes are a testament to his medium, his materials, the location where the work is created, and a sense of peace that transports the viewer to a moment in time. His work can be found in national collections in New York, London, and Paris. David Silverberg's engravings are delicate and intriguing. Look closely and the lines of his birds transform into women, his sensual sense of the feminine is bold and lusty. Réjean Roy is well known for his oil paintings but this truly diverse artist also illustrates and created dry point etchings in a style that is unique and recognisable. Newfoundland artist Lori Doody, takes the medium of etching and distills it into an amusing comment about the fun of being a girl.
















With so much talk in Toronto about subways, Stephen Bulger Gallery offers a photographic perspective on the subject.

Through the use of historical and contemporary photographs, we celebrate the ingenuity and culture of subways. Since the late 19th Century, cities have turned to tunnelling to transport their ever growing mass. Efficient, claustrophobic, worn down and constantly updated, for many city dwellers subways are a necessary part of their daily lives. Transporting oneself underground seems both otherworldly and commonplace; it is a place where solitude is often felt strongly.

This exhibition features work by unknown photographers hired to document the building of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Co. in New York. Their work is surrounded by photographs taken by a number of known photographers. This theme of construction is complimented by Vid Ingelevics’ photograph made in the Toronto Transit Commission’s Museum Station proudly showing its yellow ceramic tiles that are so familiar to Torontonians. These tiles were replaced with a station re-modification that more obviously echoed its proximity to the Royal Ontario Museum.

Adam Magyar’s steely large scale portraits of New York subway cars from his series “Stainless” are represented, and during the exhibition in our cinema space called CAMERA, we will screen one of his “Stainless” video works. These renowned videos use a high-speed quality control camera used in mass production for capturing fast-moving objects and put it into a human context to speak about our urban world and people living in an urban life.

Bruce Davidson’s haunting colour environmental portraits made in 1980 and published as SUBWAY (St. Ann’s Press, 2003), have been released as an edition of Dye Transfer prints. A selection of Davidson’s famed portraits are shown opposite a suite of Michael Wolf’s celebrated portraits of commuters called “Tokyo Compression”, part of his mammoth project called “Life In Cities”.

A set of film stills from The Warriors, directed by Walter Hill and released in 1979 are displayed across the gallery from a salon of vignettes covering more than 100 years of scenes seen underground while riding the subway. This salon wall includes work by unknown photographers, as well as photographs by Dave Heath, André Kertész, William Klein, Luis Mallo, Jamel Shabazz, Kazuo Sumida, Alexey Titarenko and George S. Zimbel.
