Cataract: New works by Julia Dickens and Greg Zenha

@ The White House Studio Project
277.5 Augusta Ave.

Vernissage: July 15th, 7pm.
Gallery Open: July 16th and 17th, 1 – 5pm.

Cataract:
1) an eye disease that involves the clouding or opacification of the natural
lens of the eye
2) a large waterfall; violent rush of water over a precipice.

This exhibition of recent work from Julia Dickens and Greg Zenha, consists of drawings, paintings, photography and film, and initially began as a reunion of two friends. Developed as a means of individually documenting memory and personal experiences, the artists found a common dialogue within their ideas: a sense of frustration but also humour, a break down of significant events, the emotional cataract that follows, and the desire to create meaning of those events in hindsight.

The mirror that Greg and Julia hold up to each other reflects three thresholds. Initiating a conversation between the two artists but also with the viewer. The ambiguity of these three images triggers an emotional memory, ideally exposing the viewer to something within themselves and their own experiences.

Julia Dickens is currently completing a BA in Illustration with minors in Printmaking and Painting & Drawing. She is a former board member at the White House Studio Project, and has shown work in various group shows in Toronto and Ottawa.

Greg Zenha is a graduate of the School of Photographic Arts in Ottawa, specializing in large format film photography. He currently lives and has his studio in Montreal, Canada. This is Greg’s first Toronto exhibition, and Greg and Julia’s first time exhibiting work together.”
