TORONTO: Georgia Scherman Projects: Sandra Brewster

Opening Reception: May 4, 6-8pm

It’s all a blur is a series of gestural portraits made with photo-based gel transfers. The medium is used as a metaphor for movement or change from one place to another, (The/This/name of show/series) references the migration of the artist’s parents and their peers who left Guyana for Toronto in the late 1960’s. Inspired by the preciousness of old photographs and their relationship to time and memory, this series mimics and somewhat exaggerates the physical quality of those photographs by revealing imperfections left by creases, tears and folds.
