Artist

Chunhua Zhang

Chunhua Zhang considers painting as a medium that maximizes freedom of expression, one that allows him to communicate with his viewers through texture and traces of repeated alteration. In his works, scenes and objects appear in the “past tense.”

Chunhua Zhang participated in the 13th Havana Biennial; 11th Florence biennale 2017; and is involved in the contemporary Chinese art scene in Toronto.

Artist

Habby Osk

Habby Osk’s interests lies in basic physics: balance, movement, gravity, time and force. These concepts play an important role across her art practice as she creates works which test the limits of balance and stability and explore gravity’s influence over time using sculpture, photography and installation as her primary medium. Osk places objects in precarious situations to probe how far they can go without tipping over, to capture the moment of stillness before the looming collapse and the transformation over time.

Habby Osk has exhibited work at Gerðarsafn – Kópavogur Art Museum, Iceland; Akureyri Art Museum, Iceland; and Tina Kim Gallery, New York, among others.

Artist

Lou Sheppard

Lou Sheppard works with score, systems of notation, translation and metaphor to explore the performative powers of data and language. They have worked with a wide variety of source texts-diagnostic criteria from the DSM V, field recordings of birdsong, sea ice tracking data, executive management principles, government policy among others, to create scores, musical compositions, choreographies, and performances. Their work often leads them to collaborate with other artists, including musicians, visual artists and performing artists.
